Inside an Icy Mossy Cave

by Kristi Hines

While the name of this cave is Mossy Cave, it really should be re-named the Icy Cave in the winter. It was full of lovely ice formations. The challenge was getting close enough to shoot inside, as the ground next to the railing was also covered in ice.

Frozen Waterfall

by Kristi Hines

I’ve seen some interesting waterfalls, but never a frozen one. I wish I had gotten a nice perspective shot of it – it was probably about ten feet high! This was off of the Mossy Cave Trail in Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah.

Inside a Slot Canyon

by Kristi Hines

Over the holiday, I got to experience my first slot canyon. I really didn’t get my husband’s enthusiasm about them (he has a nice collection of slot canyon photos) until I went through one myself. By the end of our trip, we had went through three and I figured out why he loved them so much! This was a shot inside the first one.

Forrest Gump

by Kristi Hines

Sometimes you end up finding things you don’t expect when on the road. While we were shooting a rainstorm over Monument Valley, I saw a sign on the sign of the road that said Forest Gump. Upon closer inspection, it was a sign that marks the spot where Forest ends his cross country run in 1980 in the movie Forrest Gump. I love this movie, so this shot is easily one of my favorites from our anniversary weekend road trip.
