Los Angeles

I got to the hostel in LA around 8pm, after spending the whole day in Joshua tree. I hadn’t booked into the Hostel but had called ahead to make sure they had bed for me. The hostel I was staying at was called The Anderson Estates and was the cheapest I could find in LA …

Zion National Park

I would almost go as far as to say that Zion has been my favorite Park So far. It’s unique geographical formations create a variety of landscapes with amazingly varied colours, it was a truly awe inspiring experience. I drove in from the east entrance, (which I highly recommend) it takes to through these amazing …

Grand Canyon – North Rim

The grand canyon was an amazing site to see, it almost looked fake standing at the top of the rim and looking around. It was also a complete surprise for me, when I thought grand Canyon I did not think Canadian Forrest. When I thought grand Canyon I thought desert, but driving into the North …

Page and Kanab

In the morning I checked out Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell. Unfortunately the lift was broken so I couldn’t go down into the power plant, but it was still amazing to see and learn about. Such an engineering feat considering it was built in the 1950’s. I will also be hitting up Hoover Dam …

What a day, in the morning I got up and headed to the Mill Canyon Dinosaur trails. A short drive out of town on 191 you turn off onto Mill Canyon Rd and follow the signs. It was only a short walk from the Car Park to the viewing area where they’ve installed some boardwalks …

Mesa Verde Day 2

Today was an early start as my first tour, the long house, was at 9:00am and it was about a 1.5h drive across the park to get there. Long house was a bit bigger than Balcony house and once had some 150 rooms, it is probably in the worst shape of all the dwellings I …

Colorado – Mesa Verde Day 1

My first stop on my way to Colorado was actually an unplanned stop in a small town called Chama, NM. Don’t worry it wasn’t for any car troubles, but for a friend, Tegan, She is obsessed with trains (might have something to do with her job at Queensland rail, but I worked for an AC …

Taos to Heron Lake

The drive from Taos to Heron Lake was full of surprises. First was the Rio Grande gorge Bridge an arch bridge that spans across the Rio Grande Gorge, I stopped here for a little bit and went for a wander, it was pretty sweet standing on the bridge and looking down into the gorge. Next …

Las Cruces – White Sands

I ended up staying two nights as the weather was really bad the first day and I wanted to see the white sands when the weather was good. The campsite was also really nice, situated at the foot of the hills of the Organ Mountain National Recreation Area overlooking the planes bellow which were actually …
