National Park Road Trip

So as the previous post rambled on about, I recently spent two weeks in America. We landed in L.A, and spent two weeks driving through California, Nevada, Arizona and Utah before flying back home from LA.

The route was pretty sweet:

LA > Santa Monica > Joshua Tree National Park > Las Vegas > Grand Canyon > Monument Valley > Arches National Park > Bryce Canyon  > Zion National Park > Yosemite National Park > Kings Canyon / Sequoia National Park > Refugio Beach > LA

The highlight of the trip for me – although the whole thing was EPIC – was walking ‘The Narrows’ in Zion National Park. The Narrows is a ten mile route where you walk through the Virgin River. We only did 2.5 miles to the fork and back as it was getting deeper and we didn’t want to get too wet!

It was amazing, walking through the canyon. It was a very popular route, lots of people were walking it but it was nice as we chatted to different people along the route. I’d seriously recommend it to anyone. I plan on going back sometime to do the whole 10 miles!
