Here are some of my favorite photos from my recent trip with Corning Incorporated and the “Gorilla Glass 4:” Leticia Barr, Kelly Olexa, (me) and Beth Santos. We pushed ourselves through some rough terrain, and captured as much of it as we could with the excellent camera on the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+.
I loved the camera on the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ not only because it’s super slim and slid easily in and out of my pocket; but because it takes gorgeous photos, especially in pro mode. I also felt confident taking it along on these tough activities knowing it’s covered with Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4, the toughest cover glass yet from Corning. Even if it did slip out of my hands, Gorilla Glass 4 is better able to withstand damage from drops of up to one meter.
What did we do while we were there?
Day One we hiked down to the Betatakin Ruins –
Which was pretty crazy; it’s over 700 feet straight down on switchback stairs with no railing. Add to that the fact that it was intermittently raining so, yeah, it was a wee bit harrowing.
(Here’s a round-up of my favorite hiking gear.)
Day Two was spent off-roading in UTVs over rock faces –
Through soft desert sand and splashing through mud puddles to get to the Paria canyon overlooking the northern-most edge of the Grand Canyon.
Day Three we chased the light –
Around the narrow formations of Navajo sandstone and squeezed and climbed through Owl, Rattlesnake and Antelope canyons.
We stayed in Sedona and Page, Arizona to reach these sites. I often take for granted the beauty in my own country, but these experiences made me appreciate the United States in such a deep way. If you can, try to visit this gorgeous part of America if you get a chance, it really is like no other place.
