Pine Tree Arch on the Devil’s Garden trail

We took our kids to Moab just last week for their spring break adventures.  We took them there once when they where a baby but they had no memories of it.  So this time for sure they will make their own memories and have something to talk about with their friends.

With only a few minutes to packed, I grabbed my trusty Nikon D750 and a Nikon 17-35mm f2.8D lens to shoot the whole trip.

Boy did we had quite an adventure!  First we couldn’t find a campground, they where all full.  Secondly, My hat flew off while I was taking a picture from the sun roof while my wife was going 60mph.  This made my boy so happy, throughout the whole trip he keeps reminding me not lose my hat.

Than my daughter and wife got lost on one of the hikes when we decided to go on a different path.  But everyone got ice cream to makeup for the misfortune.

We went to Dead Horse Point, Wilson’s Arch, Pine Tree Arch and some others at the Devil’s Garden, Hiked the Negro Bill Canyon Trail.  The Dead Horse Point was the scariest due to the drop-offs and steep cliffs.

My wife is a team player, she didn’t mind making a lot of stops so I can get out and take pictures.

The Road to Devil’s Garden

Overall we had fun making new memory with our family.  The Nikon D750 paired with the 17-35mm did not disappoint, it’s an awesome pair for landscaping and for close quarter(shooting inside the truck).  The D750 has 24 Megapixel so you can shoot to crop if you wish!  The Nikon 17-35mm was sharp and flexible because you can zoom in to 35mm without changing the lens in a dusty environment.  It is also one of the few lens with the least distortion around the corners and it takes ND filter without a problem.

Whats your favorite camera and lenses to take on vacation/roadtrips?
