  1. Uffffff… Una Serie Impresionante, Cuanto Más Las Miro, Más Me Gustan… Un Saludo.

  2. La foto del Parque Nacional Bryce Canyon es espectacular.

  3. What a wonderful ‘memory’ post of so many amazing places you have been able to visit and photograph. (This Friday starts our annual family vacation on our Lake Powell houseboat. Looks like we might not make it this year!!!)

  4. Fabulous pictures, as always. But you need to add a shot of 2 first graders bickering over a toy, as an homage to Congress……

  5. Beautiful shots Jane, and a great idea for a post. Well done!

  6. I’m thankful you shared your absolutely gorgeous photographs, Jane. Short term, I don’t know when we’re to make it to the Grand Tetons….your post is motivating to start making maybe not so long term plans.

  7. Thanks for sharing. Too bad so many people aren’t able to enjoy these parks right now.

  8. Outstanding post on multiple levels. Totally agree with Ginny.

  9. Amazing photography Jane – love the perspective that you capture.

  10. Great shots. Do I understand correctly that these places are closed? What the… !

  11. Exceptional photos of an exceptionally beautiful country!

  12. The Badlands look like an optical illusion. It took my eyes a couple seconds to get oriented.

  13. You are an amazing landscape artist. I love the title.

  14. your pictures show how art triumphs over political stupidity… maybe common sense will make a Congressional appearance

  15. These photos are stunning and so timely underscore the tragic consequences of political extortion.

  16. I’m so happy you did this post. The photos are beautiful and I only hope the people in Washington will start doing what is right instead of what they think will get them re-elected.

  17. Great post, Jane! Perhaps some of the people in Washington should chill out for a while and visit some of these places!

  18. What a lovely way to express the schoolboy politics in your country Jane. Lovely photographs. One of which brought back fond memories of, I think … the princess’s room and the elevator in the Carlsbad Cavern. Best cave in the world I reckon. Ralph xox 😀

  19. Excellent and moving post, Jane…

    and gorgeous pix, as usual!

    love, Sher

  20. Absolutely beautiful!! We are so lucky to have this beauty in our country. Your photos are all so fabulous.

  21. When they say a picture speaks a thousand words, they were referring to photos presented like this, at this time. The National Parks will endure and are timeless and will remain apolitical even if man tries to bring them into the fray. I agree with the above person that says ” I too have no words for this nonsense”.

  22. very nice! Ann

  23. Spectacularly effective post, Jane. Your photos are stunning, and I like how you let them speak for themselves. I , too, have no words for this nonsense.

  24. usually, in the private sector, you get fired for not doing your job. Not so in the Federal Government.

  25. Beautiful photos Jane, and sad that all of these places are now closed. I live on a military base and this is definitely affecting people in so many ways. Hopefully our lawmakers will come to an agreement soon so people can get on with their lives and our parks are once again open for enjoyment.

Love to hear what you think...
