If I could describe the drive to LA from the Grand Canyon in two words it would be long and hot. We drove down what felt like thousands of kilometres of straight road with nothing but sand and shrubs on either side. After several long hours and a stop at a random shoe cemetary where […]Read more "Los Angeles"
We had a long drive ahead of us from Canyonlands to the Grand Canyon so decided to break it all up with some scenic routes and parks along the way. The first of these was the Valley of the Gods, a long and dusty dirt road full of bright red sand and the most incredible […]Read more "Grand Canyon National Park"

Desperate to find some shade we drove further into BLM land, finally finding a small tree to provide a cool haven away from the day’s blazing sun.

Yes the place is tacky and yes quite sleazy, but you can’t help but be dazzled by the bright lights and caught up in all of the excitement. Wild parties, stretched limos and […]Read more "Las Vegas"
