After San Fransisco: relaxtime

After 11 days driving and visiting as much as possible, we had lots of time to relax on our last 6 days in America.

We drove by Highway 1, near Santa Cruz, Monterey, Big Sur, Ventura, Santa Monica to Los Angeles.

We made several stops to enjoy the landscapes, relax, eat a burger, enjoy wildlife, shop, ... just have fun!

Alcatraz...so amazing!!!!

If you got the chance, you must visit Alcatraz Island! Really, this was so impressive, you could feel the coldness of this old prison. We made the evening tour, something we will never forget!!! More pics from the interior are coming soon.

Changing plans: Yosemite National park

After visting Mono Lake we changed our plans, normally we would go north to Lake Tahoe, but the Tiogopass just opened so we had the possibility to visit Yosemite National park. Something we must visit, lots op people said, but for us it wasn't that special after the beautiful Bryce Canyon, etc.

But we had the chance to play in the snow...so great experience...again!

Mono Lake

After Zion we had to drive a lot, but what we saw was amazing. Mono Lake, for me the most impressionated place we have seen. In summer, you see much more Tuffa's because the waterlevel is lower.

Zion National Park

On our 5th day we visited Zion National park. Hiking is the best way to discover this park. Because we don't have that much time, we made two small hikes, near the river and another to the waterfalls. Very hot in here, not that much water anymore...

Horse Shoe Bend: AAAMMMAAAZZZIIINNNGGG

On our way from the Grand Canyon to Lake Powell we made a stop to make a hike in the desert. It was very hot, but what we saw was wonderful. We both shivered a bit, because it was so high, and we needed a 10mm to get this on 1 picture :-(

Day 1- 2: Grand Canyon!

The first two days from our trip we spended in the Grand Canyon, so enormous, so beautiful.

Difficult to explain with a picture, you must see this to feel an unnamed feeling!
