It all started with an idea… A road trip that will make us see the wonders of Mother Nature. But we were far from imagining how amazing and beautiful America is.
We started from Los Angeles, we drove to Las Vegas and stayed a few days there. Which is always enjoyable, a good dinner, a nice pool side and a little gambling at night was a great start.
3 rd Day, we took the road… The plan was to drive all day, and stop to the Valley of Fire, the Zion National Park and the Horseshoe Bend before heading to Lake Powell resort to rest.
The Valley of Fire was really on fire! The rocs are red and pink, you can hike and explore. We took few pictures, climbed and enjoyed the view.
On our way to Zion, we stopped at the Zion Store, it’s a cute gift shop with a restaurant and a mini cowboy town with lamas that you can feed. Kids loved it!
Direction Horeshoe Bend, where people think they are immortal! You park and then you have to hike for 15 minutes to arrive to the top of the magnificient canyon. You are on top of the world, however there is no security or fence of any kind. So please beware! No crazy selfies on the edge please! And sunset was magical.
We finally arrived at the hotel for a well deserved rest. We stayed at the Lake Powell resorts and Spa. The hotel is situated on the Lake Powell, beautiful peaceful view.
The next morning, we went to cross out Antelope Canyon from our bucket list! I advise to visit the Lower Antelope Canyon, it’s definetely the most amazing one. You have to join a guided tour to be able to access it. We used Dixie Tours, they were great. The day light reflecting the canyon gives you the crazy colors that you see on the pictures. It’s a must!
And on the road again, this time heading to the Grand Canyon West.
At the end of the day, we arrived at the Hualapai Ranch. It’s a ranch situated in the middle of the Grand Canyon West, where you can enjoy a real cowboy life experience. Horses, wood cabins to sleep in, smores on the fire at night rocked by Native american songs.A real change of scenery!
The next morning, a bus from the ranch picked us up and took us to the Skywalk. Skywalk is a U shaped glass bridge over the rim of the Canyon. Look down and you can see right through it!Sensitive souls refrain! Down side, you can’t take your phone or your camera with you while walking on it. You will need to go through their own photographer for a photo. And if you are hungry, you can enjoy a lunch at the restaurant right on top of the skywalk. The view is worth it!
It was one of the best trips of my life. I called my blog Jen wonders, because of all the wonders in the world that I want to explore. This one was obviously full of wonders!
