    Capital Reef

    April 5, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 57 °F

    A quick stop at Capital Reef National Park named because the white tops reminded people of capital buildings and the long impenetrable line of rocks reminded them of a coral reef !

  • Day13

    Highway 24

    April 5, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 63 °F

    The most eerie and atmospheric parts of our road trip , leaving the freeway for a less travelled route we find ourselves on a road with no other cars, strange skies and rock formations like something from another planet . Also strange dust storms blow up from nowhere as the strange rock formations then appear slowly in the hazy sun - all very strangeRead more

  • Day12

    Arches

    April 4, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 52 °F

    The owner of the B & B tells us that we need to be up and at the park at 8.00 for any chance to see the delicate arch so we are up at the crack of dawn and still were lucky to get the last parking space at the base of the hike up there . Its a very steep 3 mile climb up to the top of the mountain to see the arch and extremely hot even at this early hour but soo worth the climbRead more

  • Day11

    Mese Verde

    April 3, 2015 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 32 °F

    A planned stop this time at the extraordinary Mese Verde flat top mountains with masses of cave dwellings. A long winding road takes you to the top where there are magnificent views of the Colorado mountains as well as the caves

    Moab

    April 3, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 55 °F

    As we reach the outskirts of Moab we see the first of the famous red rock arches right next to the road . We have just 2 nights at the beautiful Sunflower Inn B & B which is an oasis of quite compared to what is an extremely busy town which is overrun with 4 by 4s. We arrive to find all restaurants are fully booked so we borrow a toaster and cook up some toast and various leftovers !Read more

  • Day11

    Hesperus

    April 3, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 48 °F

    I got up early and had a jog around the beautiful lake very bracing cant believe how cold it is in the mountains . Breakfast was provided up at the main Ranch which was huge ! We made the most of our last few hours here before hitting the road again.

  • Day10

    Durango

    April 2, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 52 °F

    Boy I cocked up only booking one night here - the most amazing massive log cabin located on its own lake with huge open fires in the living room and bedroom . We make the most of our one night here and stay up late setting fire to things and drinking local beer !

  • Day10

    Tierra Amarilla

    April 2, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 50 °F

    Time to hit the road again ,we are glad to be leaving Santa Fe and the rather odd art galleries and appalling breakfasts . We are now on our way to the mountains of Colorado . We stop off at some lake thing but its rather boring and very cold , We get supplies at the most amazing supermarket which is like a giant health food shop and then finally reach our log cabin - wished we had booked longer for here !Read more

  • Day9

    Santa Fe

    April 1, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 54 °F

    Its Charlie's birthday ! He starts the day with a pretty horrid breakfast , we then go to an art gallery that has the oddest art (why is there a painting of a monkey on a donkey?) We get dressed up for the evening and have cocktails followed by posh burgers:)
