Story of Seligman on Historic 66 Photo by Vijaya C. — National Geographic Your Shot

I took very long time to process this old picture, it is old but new! On final leg returning from Grand canyon to Las Vegas, Guru my friend and me decided to stay in small town called Ashforks. After dinner, as Guru was browsing about our next visit, we found out the history of HWY 66. After learning the history we decided to take highway-66 instead of other super fast highway, we traveled through until Seligman. The story of these small town tells due to new high-speed highways, less people travel through these small-towns. Seligman & Ashforks were among the popular town on HWY66, but now deserted towns with very few people around.

Landscapes of Monument valley

It is nice experience to visit monument valley, along with my friend Gurudatt I had been to this wonderful landscape last winter. Off-course it was also great escape for us from Manitoba`s winter in December. Monument valley is a great playground for nature photographers specially landscapers. This place is not far from Grand canyon and  Antelope canyon, about one and half hour journey worth to drive from Page, AZ. Here I am sharing some of my shots, feel free to click individual images for full view. Also don`t forget to like, share and comment.

Bios-des-esprit trail is one of the nice short hiking trail in Winnipeg. Its about 117 acre in middle of the city, I guess only people staying in this neighborhood know about this place.
