USA | Week 3 | Back to the coast

22 December, 2016   by elias

We actually spent a night in Las Vegas too but I didn’t have a single picture from those 24h, so we’re starting off on the road to Joshua Tree National Park instead.

USA | Week 2 | The desert

15 December, 2016   by elias

Starting from our campground in Yosemite at 6 am in the morning, we drove the Tioga Pass towards Death Valley, passing small places like Independece, Toms place and Lone Pine. We had a long drive ahead of us, and descended more than 9000 ft in just a few hours.

After a night in Page, we drove towards the next big stop – Grand Canyon. Fabian had hyped this place so we had sky high expectations that was immediately met by the stunning vast landscapes that were nothing like we could’ve imagined. We stayed up to watch the sunset, and went back to the rim in the early morning to catch the sunrise as well.

USA | Week 1 | LA to Yosemite

17 November, 2016   by elias

This October, we went on a roadtrip for 3 weeks around California, Nevada, Utah and Arizona. We started out in LA, where we picked up a Jucy Champ Mini RV and spent a few days in and around Venice, before hitting the road and driving Highway 1 up to San Fransisco.

From Napa to Yosemite.

We stayed at Skyline Wilderness Park in Napa Valley for two nights, played some disc golf, drank some wine, hiked some local trails, and then went back on the road to Yosemite Valley. We camped at Hodgon Meadow just after passing the north western entrance to the park. The ambiance was great and it still offered a lot more privacy than the campgrounds down in the valley. After spending two nights there, we drove the Tioga Pass through Yosemite towards Death Valley.
