A guide to Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah

Bryce Canyon National Park was one of many National Parks we were lucky enough to visit during our road trip around the USA in Elvis the Van. It was also one of my favourites. Each National Park turned out to be so different and special in their own right, but Bryce Canyon, Utah was like nothing that I'd ever seen before. It also helped that it wasn't that busy when we visited either! If you're ...

The best hikes in Bryce Canyon National Park

Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah quickly became one of my favourite nationals parks when we visited. Never before had I seen those unique Bryce Canyon hoodoo rock formations found in the Bryce Canyon amphitheatre. We spent about one day in Bryce Canyon, Utah but spread over two: one afternoon where we drove the scenic road to the furthest point, and a morning where we took some chilly hikes in Bryce Canyon National Park. You could ...

What to pack for Bryce Canyon National Park

  Are you planning a trip to Bryce Canyon National Park and wondering what to pack? It can be tricky knowing what to take with you when you visit a National Park.

You should also expect snow ...

A guide to the Grand Canyon’s South Rim

Out of all the National Parks we visited, the Grand Canyon National Park had to be the one I'd heard the most about. I mean, who hasn't heard of the Grand Canyon?! What I hadn't realised is that there are different parts of the Grand Canyon you can visit. It makes sense since the canyon itself is so huge, but it's not something I'd considered before. We ended up visiting the Grand Canyon's South Rim ...

I honestly think that one of the top Grand Canyon activities is going for a hike. This list ...

A first timers guide to Zion National Park, Utah

I don't think I'd ever heard of Zion National Park before visiting as part of our three month USA road trip. It's definitely a popular National Park (one of the most visited in the US!) but it's not quite on the level of The Grand Canyon or Yosemite, at least when it comes to how well it's known in the UK. If you're wondering whether to visit Zion National Park, Utah then the answer should ...

Best Zion National Park hikes

With all the National Parks we visited across the US on our three month USA road trip we tried to get in at least one hike. Zion National Park, Utah was no exception. How could it be when there are so many incredible Zion National Park hikes? We did the Angel's Landing trail in Zion which is very well known for its steep drop-offs and beautiful vistas. If you're planning a trip to Zion and ...

A guide to visiting Death Valley National Park, California

I didn't really know what to expect when it came to visiting Death Valley in California. Well, that's not entirely true, I expected it to be hot. Death Valley is a National Park that's below-sea-level and is renowned for being in a steady drought. It's where you find record making temperatures in the summer but when we visited this was not the case. It rained, it poured and thunder and lightning all night. We ended ...

The best day hikes and backpacking in Death Valley National Park, California!

I didn't have many expectations for Death Valley. I'd never really heard much about it apart from the fact it gets super hot. But on our visit to Death Valley during our 3 month USA road trip, not only did it pour down with rain more than it did at any other point during our trip, but I was genuinely surprised about how pretty and extensive the park is. In fact, I'd put it out ...

Complete guide to visiting North Cascades National Park

North Cascades National Park, Washington was the last US National Park we visited during our three-month cross country road trip. The year we visited winter had been kinda crazy all along the west coast so some roads were still closed at the beginning of June! It's true, the summer season in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest is short but it's a beautiful one! Plus, even if you visit outside of the winter months, you're ...
