From sculptured gardens to underground caverns, ancient redwoods, an engineering marvel, and a classic Western panorama — I can only identify one or two of this week’s images, but I’m still enjoying the photographic tour of the western United States!
The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge for the week of March 21, 2018. This week, share an image of your happy place, a secret spot you love, or a faraway location you return to again and again.
