A roadtrip of America's most iconic national parks.

Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Bryce Canyon, Yellowstone - these names promise unforgettable impressions. The western part of the USA offers a wealth of superb landscapes and rock formations. The road trip starts at the Jumbo Rocks in the Joshua Tree National Park in California. We continue through the desert to one of the largest natural spectacles on Earth and to a symbol of the Wild West: the Grand Canyon. The Colorado River has formed the canyon over the past six million years, revealing layers of stone that provide us with an insight into the Earth’s history of some millions of years. About 550 kilometers upstream, the river forms the Horseshoe Bend. There are not many other places where you can take a more stunning picture of the Colorado River. Our next stop is Tropic and Bryce Canyon. Unlike Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon was not created by a river, but by countless cycles of freezing and thawing. These geological structures were formed into needle cliffs and rock columns by wind, water, and ice. Next, we travel eastbound through Monument Valley. The world-famous monolithic sandstone structures form table mountains, pinnacles, plateaus, and arches, which rise up as much as 300 meters. The next section takes us across Colorado and into the Rocky Mountain National Park near Denver. The park is known for more than 110 peaks of the Rockies, with heights of over 3000 meters. The final stop on this road trip is Mammoth Hot Springs in the Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. The town gets its name from the nearby travertine terraces and, of course, the hot springs.

Horseshoe Bend.

Over the past six million years, the Colorado River has formed a gorge and revealed rock strata that allow a glimpse into millions of years of geological history. Almost 550 kilometers upstream, the river forms the so-called Horseshoe Bend, one of the most uniquely photogenic spots along the river.

Bryce Canyon.

Bryce Canyon near Tropic, Utah resembles a natural amphitheater with huge rock formations. These so-called "Hoodoos" are up to 60 meters high and display fascinating red, yellow and brown shades of basalt and sandstone colored by iron oxide.

Monument Valley.

For the Navajo Indians, Monument Valley is a sacred place. It is located in the northern part of the Navajo Nation Reservation in the so-called Four Corners Area (Utah, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico). The huge rocks have been filmed and photographed countless times for films, magazines and commercials.
