Epic Holiday: Summer 2014

Many of my loyal readers will know that I recently came back from an amazing month in the USA. I thought I’d share a few photos of our 4 weeks travelling west to east, and some of my favourite stops.

Attempting to sketch Lower Yosemite Falls 
Paddling down river, Yosemite
Hugging a Giant Redwood, Sequoia National Park
Sunset over the Grand Canyon, North Rim (we camped!)
 Hilarious sign, on the way to a meteor crater in Arizona
 Mucking about with the camera!
The Very Large Array, New Mexico (just before we got caught, and soaked, in a giant storm!)
Mesa Verde National Park
Obligatory jump shot
Horseback riding and cowboy cookout in Yellowstone National Park
