I posted our trip plans a while back, that can be seen here.
I am pleased to report that we got around to plan without pushing to hard and not feeling to robbed of time in each place. [although we wished we had more].
We managed the Moki dugway and Generals highway without any drama in our RV, but each individual should decide if it's for them or not.
Anyway, I 'd just like to say WOOOOOOOWWEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! What a beautifull country, absolutely fantastic, it took my breath away, you guys who live or get to see it often are so lucky.
The night skys, fall colours and diversity of the places we visited were just unbelievable. Every part of the trip was fantastic, from the cities of San Fran and Vegas to the hikes in Yosemite and Zion N.P, the views over Bryce and Grand canyon [and a memorable helicopter flight], to the desert landscapes and to the giant forests, just briliant.
What made it even better were the people we came across, friendly, helpfull and always smiling. If everyone from the UK that visits the USA brings a little of this home with them,[as I have] we will be better for it.
