From Las Vegas we headed into Zion National Park for two nights. Every National Park we come across is just as beautiful as the one before and Zion was no exception. It is quite a small National Park made up of high cliffs and stunning valleys. (more…)
We headed from San Diego to Joshua Tree National Park with excitement. What a crazy place and we fell in love with it instantly! Being in the Joshua Tree National Park makes you feel as though you are a character in a Dr Seuss book (like The Lorax) as the scenery was unlike anything we had ever experience in New Zealand.

Disneyland, Disneyland, Disneyland – that is all that was involved in L.A. Part 2 – it is seriously the happiest (and cleanest) place on earth. AND IT IS CHURRO HEAVEN. Need to start using that skipping rope… (more…)
We left beautiful beautiful Yosemite and headed back towards the California Coast and Santa Cruz. We camped there for a night taking the time to explore the famous Santa Cruz boardwalk. (more…)
We have just spent three nights at the Yosemite National Park and what an amazing couple of days it has been.
Yosemite is an absolutely beautiful place surrounded by tall mountains/cliffs. (more…)
We arrived in San Francisco early afternoon last Tuesday (6th August) via the Golden Gate Bridge and checked into our hotel. It was hard to be away from Dorris for four nights but we managed (especially because we had our own shower for the first time since the start of our trip)! (more…)
From Portland Bryce and I headed down the Oregon Coast towards Newport – what beautiful coastline. We camped at another amazing campsite a few miles South from Newport near the beach. Bryce made us a campfire (he’s getting good at those) and we spent the evening just relaxing. (more…)
We have reached the USofA yahoo – we crossed the border on Thursday morning and even got a “have fun” from the not very smiley border crossing guy!
After a shop for supplies we filled up on Gas which was $3.29 a gallon, or $0.87 cents a litre which Bryce was very excited about. (more…)
Last Sunday we packed up Dorris and hit the road.
As mentioned in the last post our first night was spent in Banff with our friend Clare. It was also our first night sleeping in Dorris!
Sorry for the delay in updates – we’ve had a busy week!
Early last week Bryce headed up Ha Ling Peak with my dad, Kees, Gerard and Sally – it’s a long way up so they did really well. Bryce’s take on the walk: “o for awesome”. My mum, Myra and I met the hikers for lunch afterwards and then headed to Banff to explore. (more…)
