We spent five weeks in the USA, between 13th August and 18th September 2003. The pages for this time became pretty long and large, so it’ll take you a while to read them all!Our itinerary took us to Los Angeles, then down the coast towards San Diego. Then we turned inland, through Joshua National Park to Las Vegas. From there it was National Parks all the way – Zion, Grand Canyon and Bryce, and then west to Mammoth Lakes before going to Yosemite. We had a brief stay at Lake Tahoe, and then got back to the coast at San Francisco. After 5 enjoyable days there, we then drove down the coast road to LA, ending up with 5 days at Disneyland.
Well, we’re here – in sunny California. Although it isn’t as hot as some of the places we saw in Canada (or as hot as the UK!), the direct sun is very, very hot. Even Sarah’s searching out the shady side of the street.
LA is so different to Canada – definitely mean streetsville – and we seem to be destined to staying in motels, as there are very few hostels in the US. The next couple of days are about planning our month, and then we’ll make a real effort to get an hour on an Internet machine somewhere and provide an update.
