Hello everyone!! Here's a brief summary of where else we have been (we are very tired 2day & do not have much brain power)!
Since our last blog we have been to: Siox Falls where it rained & poured lots so we all stopped at a motel & shared 7 to a room (don't tell the motel people shhhhhhh!) Then we went to Badlands & went Horse riding at sunset..en route we stopped at a palace made entirely of corn which was quite...odd! Claire saw her 1st shooting star but in all the excitment forgot to make a wish! We then visited Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Monument & camped at Devils tower where we cooked Japanese curry with Yumi! Yellowstone was the next day...v.long drive & very cold weather; lets just say a bit chilly on the willy :o) We did some big long hikes & also met another trek america group who were v.friendly. We had a party & made so much noise that our neighbour complained they couldn't hear the moose bugle (the mooses noise)
Next stop was the Grand Tetons & a pretty hike around Jenny Lake. We then went to Jackson where we danced with cowboys & Claire chewed tobacco. LAke Tahoe was our next main stop; we had a champagne sunset cruise with crazy dancing, Scottish Paul's birthday where we made sushi & spag bol & a huuuuuuugggee b'day cake!! We celebraed with a beer pong competition which Claire won!
Yosemite National Park was beautiful; we hiked to Vernal Falls & saw 3 bears they were soooo cute. After 10 days of camping we needed a bed so set up a civilisation protest, which failed dismally. We then went to San Fran; walked Golden Gate bridge & went to Alcatraz, then went on a night out which was very disappointing as the bars are all topless sex bars....lovely!
We then visited Monterey, at the beach at last :o) beautiful place! had camp fire & bbq on the beach! The stayed at Santa Barbara..the drive here was long but v.pretty along the coast. Our last day was at Universal Studios LA where we had a studio tour & went on some rides. We then had 1 last night out with the group before saying goodbye. The trek was quite an experience, lots of ups&downs but definately one to remember!
We spend 2 days in Vegas & saw the Grand Canyon which was amazing! Vegas has to be seen to be believed! We are now in Santa Monica until Monday, when we fly out to Fiji woo hoo!!!!
