While I figure out the new design for the photos section (getting rid of popup's etc) I thought I would post these pics in the blogg...
So I am back in Japan next week and I thought I would travel the US a bit before I go back (as one does) - Was thinking of going to New York but thought that I have had enough of cities and it was time to try something a bit different - and what better than to spend time in Arizona and Utah - home of the Grand Canyon and Monument Valley.
Above:Grand Canyon South Rim. Absolutely none of the photos or video clips that I took of the Grand Canyon were able to express what it was actually like to be there. We stayed in a small town called Tusayan which is just seven miles south of Grand Canyon Village on the South Rim.
Above:Monument Valley is vast and stretches over 30,000 acres. The drive from Tusayan took about 3 and a half hours but was definitely worth it. Just be careful when driving back to where ever you are getting to as I imagine you will stay at Monument Valley to enjoy the sunset - the highways in America don't have any lighting.
