Join me on a US Southwest roadtrip through Arizona, Utah and Nevada to explore some of the most instagrammable spots in the USA.

My Instagram: instagram.com/alajode

Our first road trip in the US South West will take us to 6 of the best Instagram spots in Arizona and Utah.

Our Instagram adventure begins in Sedona, where we hike to Devil’s Bridge and I brave the heights to get a cool sunset shot.

Next, it’s on to Havasu Falls, which involves a full day hike to get there – but the Instagram picture (and the view!!) make it worth it.

Then it’s time to visit Horseshoe, one of the most photographed locations in the US South West. It’s not hard to see why photographers and Instagrammers alike love it!

We stay in Page, AZ, for the next Instagram location: Antelope Canyon. Instead of visiting Lower Antelope Canon like most travellers do, we take an alternative tour to Canyon X, where tripods are allowed and we have the entire slot canyon to ourselves. The canyon is one of the most Instagrammable places in the world because it’s so photogenic.

Before we head to a much bigger canyon – the Grand Canyon! – we make a stop at Monument Valley. There’s a classic Instagram shot that almost every Instagrammer takes here: sitting or standing on one of the two rocks in front of the view of the monuments. I take the same, but I do it as sunrise so that we get a sun star over the other rock.

The Grand Canyon concludes this video and it’s the hardest places to take photos of all. It’s just impossible to show the scale and perspective in photos, but as I mentioned… you can’t visit the Grand Canyon and NOT share it on Instagram.

We have two more US road trips planned and they’ll be up on this travel channel over the next few weeks. I post new videos every Wednesday and Sunday at 5:30PM GMT. See you next time and thanks for watching!

    It’s a good thing you mention 9 mile (1 way) hike to the Havasu falls. As a lazy tourist, I won’t want to walk 9 mile just to get see a waterfall.

    1. Jodie Dewberry says:

      Haha it’s not just any waterfall! But you wouldn’t enjoy it if you don’t like hiking. Take the helicopter for sure

    Wow,,,I loved this video. It was awesome!!

    1. Jodie Dewberry says:

      Thanks Deles!

  3. Aj says:

    Imagine going to these places, just to take photos, instead of just soaking in its beauty.

    1. Jodie Dewberry says:

      You can’t do both? My boyfriend and I are photographers so we have to take photos to be able to visit such places, but it’s certainly nice to leave time to enjoy them too 😊

  4. Annie Teece says:

    I live in Arizona and absolutely love all of these places. There are a ton more that are lesser known as well! If you ever make it back to the southwest though i highly suggest going to Arches Nation Park in Utah, Zion National Park, and Seven Magic Mountains just south of Las Vegas. (The last one is definitely more of a trendy instagramable spot in the middle of the desert… worth seeing if you’re in the area though)

    1. Jodie Dewberry says:

      I loved Zion! But definitely need to check out the others next time – thanks 🙂

  5. Jeff Nielsen says:

    I’ve been up the river a dozen times and I know the rock well, I didn’t know it was that famous.

    1. Jodie Dewberry says:

      +Jeff Nielsen that must be an amazing experience!

    Very nice video.  I can see a vast difference in your images from when you first started the nomad life. Your shots were good before but they’re great now.  Keep it up the good work.  I look forward to seeing your continued growth and more adventures.

    1. Jodie Dewberry says:

      +Khalif Assad that’s so good to hear – thank you 🙂 and thanks for watching!

    Those are some beautiful places! I really need to see more of the southwestern United States as I’ve only been to Phoenix so far. The Grand Canyon and Sedona are definitely on my list of places to visit. Great video!

    1. Jodie Dewberry says:

      +Scottman895 Travel they’re both beautiful! 100% worth a visit 🙂
