Call me impulsive, but sometimes I plan trips based only on a single photo of a place. The first time I did this I visited L'ile de la Reunion in the middle of the Indian Ocean, all because of this amazing photo
by Yann Arthus Bertrand. More recently I decided to backpack through Coyote Gulch, Utah, thanks to a spectacular shot
by Michael Anderson. The Gulch did not disappoint: soaring walls, massive amphitheaters, gigantic rock arches, and even a waterfall or two. Truly a southwest paradise.
