And there we have it – the sun setting on another unforgettable trip. From the mayhem of Vegas to the serenity of the Yosemite backcountry. We were blown away by the incredible structures of the giant Sequoia trees and the breathtaking beauty and intrigue of the Bryce Hoodoos. We clambered to the airy heights of Angel’s Landing in Zion national park and sped through the stifling heat of Death Valley in our all American Ford Mustang! We met some marvellous people and saw some incredible sights along the way. A huge thank you to the U S of A!
You can see more photographs of our trip here.
Back in Vegas we toasted a great trip by going to see “Le Reve” at the Wynn hotel – incredible!
This old pick up was (and presumably still is – no matter when you are reading this post) sitting outside the Zion Mountain Ranch. I love the colours in it, sometimes old and broken can be beautiful too. I will continue to remind myself of this as I continue to follow suit!
A long lost cousin of our European Nuthatch. I love to see the Nuthatches, they are so beautiful and they are rare enough to make each sighting a bit of a treat.
As well as the weird hoodoos of yesterday’s post, Bryce also had its fair share of spooky looking dead trees.
We took a walk from Fairyland point in to Bryce National Park. We weren’t sure if we stuck to the trail or took a wrong turn and ended up on Mars!
Looking back on Zion National Park. You can see why they found it so sacrosanct.
This is our road down from Angel’s landing. If you look closely you can see the bus on the road – it’s a long way down!
The fattened masses at the top of Angel’s landing. While the tourists are distracted by the views, these guys are helping themselves to their trail mix! Except the last guy – he is too busy grooming his hairy legs!
Our route to Angel’s landing. It actually wasn’t as exposed as it looks but the views were breathtaking!
