Grand Canyon, USA. It lives up to the hype. I want to return and hike into the canyon.

Our campsite at Desert View Campground- a first-come-first-serve campground on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. $12 a night and 10 minute walks to the rim. Can’t be beat.

Horseshoe Bend near Page, Arizona. By far one of the most breath-taking views I’ve seen in my lifetime. We sat here for a half hour in contemplation of this place’s beauty.

Hiking to Angel’s Landing. Nicknamed by our adopted travel mates “Devil’s Landing” for the shear cliffs, numerous switchbacks, and seemingly never ending path. The most rewarding hike I’ve taken on in my life.

Hiking The Narrows. This is where a flowing river bed is in fact your trail. We had a flight to catch, so we just wandered about 1.5 hours in and then out again.

This trip sparked something that has always been flickering deep inside of me. The urge I now feel to explore National Parks is insatiable.

I have a travel lifestyle, I consider plane tickets to be investments, but its true that it can be expensive or prohibitive for other folks. National Parks are the greatest bargain we have in the U.S. Hop in a car and go SEE THEM. Flights to Vegas are cheap, so are those deals that include rental cars. Do it! We met more Europeans enjoying our National Parks than Americans.

Need a travel companion? Ask me, I’ll probably go.
