Our Trip and what we will see

This trip is going to be amazing. Like Renee says its not every day you get to drive across the country. Although I will not be adding any new states to my list, I will be seeing a lot of things and places I have never seen before.

Our first stop will be Arches National Park in Utah. It looks completely amazing. I am very excited to visit here and all the other state and national parks we will see. trip

The second Big place we will be seeing is the Grand Canyon. We will be visiting the South Rim. To be honest I am afraid of heights, so this is the spot I am most nervous about. trip

After that we will be heading towards Hoover Dam and Vegas. I have never been to either of these places. Vegas makes me nervous but I know Renee will take care of us!

From there we head into Sequoia National Park and Kings Canyon National Park. I am stoked for this. I have seen the redwoods (although I was really young) which are the really tall ones and now I get to see the super fat trees! This will be amazing, I know it! Just look how small the people are by the tree.

    What a fabulous trip you have planned Val you are so so lucky.  Last year my husband and I flew to San Francisco, then motored down to Pismo Beach and Santa Barbara and then on to Las Vegas.  I shall never forget the wonderful times we had it was totally and utterly Awesome all the way!  I couldn't even say which was the best bit!  I would love to do it again some day for sure! :)
