Southwest USA, 2016
Ever since I was little, I wanted to be a cowboy…
I bought into this romantic idea of the Wild West, the desert, sunny blue sky with red rocks for endless miles, Native Americans riding horses through canyons, that Wild West. Quite weird for an Asian kid huh? It was because I was obsessed with this cartoon called Lucky Luke.. yeah that’s where it all came from.
Now I’m 19, almost two decades, it was long enough. Traded in my horse for my Accord, ten-gallon hat for a baby blue LA’s Dodger, and boots for Nike Free Runs.
Grand Canyon, AZ
Antelope Canyon, AZ
Horseshoe Bend, AZ
Nature in all of its glory, roadside diners, pee breaks in the desert, shivering in the snow, empty cans of Red Bull, and more memories with my old man. Yeah, that’s what this trip was all about.
