Epic Holiday: Summer 2014

Many of my loyal readers will know that I recently came back from an amazing month in the USA. I thought I'd share a few photos of our 4 weeks travelling west to east, and some of my favourite stops. 

Alcatraz, San Francisco

Attempting to sketch Lower Yosemite Falls 

Paddling down river, Yosemite

Hugging a Giant Redwood, Sequoia National Park

Sunset over the Grand Canyon, North Rim (we camped!)

 Hilarious sign, on the way to a meteor crater in Arizona

 Mucking about with the camera!

The Very Large Array, New Mexico (just before we got caught, and soaked, in a giant storm!)

Mesa Verde National Park

Obligatory jump shot

Horseback riding and cowboy cookout in Yellowstone National Park
