Surapon,

I'm so pleased you got a chance to visit my home state, and even more pleased that you enjoyed it so much. From alpine forests to red rock formations in the desert, there's such a variety of landscape and wildlife in Utah. Sometimes I forget how blessed I am to live here.

You've inspired me to take more opportunities to go on photo excursions, and I look forward to your updates to this thread.

Take care...
