Day 1 - We left L.A mid morning and spent the day driving across California and half of Arizona to a town called Williams, about an hour West of Flagstaff, just before the turn off to the Grand Canyon. We stayed in a decent place with pool and a spa, a little treat after the days driving.
Day 2 - We visited the Grand Canyon, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World carved out by the Colorado river. We visited the South rim for a couple of hours before driving south to Sedona to meet with the famous abductee Kim Carlsberg to use her military grade night vision goggles and binoculars to search for UFOs. We got there in time to enjoy the beautiful rock formations over a cuppa, in a glorious afternoon, only
As soon as the sun set we met with Kim and drove out to a spot out of town to search for UFOs. We lost count of how many we saw, but i'd guess that over the course of an hour and a half we spotted between 20 - 25 UFOs and also observed some satellites, plenty of planes and the Andromeda galaxy. It was a brilliant tour in my opinion, I loved it and after freezing our botties off we went to an alien themed diner dedicated to Kim and her story.
For more info on the tour you can check out her website, or for her story she has written a couple of books.
Day 3 - We left pretty early and had some breakfast in the forest before leaving the Sedona area and heading towards Moab in Utah.
Day 4 - We visited the Canyonlands National park, a beautiful park with a colorful landscape eroded into countless canyons by the Colorado and Green Rivers. The park is multi-layered and from the "Island in the Sky" district that we visited you can see many canyons stretching out for miles and miles, sadly the photos don't really do it justice.
Day 5 - We spent a few hours in Arches National Park, this park is absolutely beautiful, amazing colours, shapes and rock formations e.g Balanced rock or the Fiery furnace and over 2000 natural sandstone arches.
After the park we had some lunch in Moab and then drove West in the direction of the Fishlake forest intending to turn south from there to reach the
Day 6 - We woke up in a completely different scene, the ground was completely covered in snow and we felt like we were in a christmas card scene. The scenery was very pretty and the snow covered scenery continued as we headed south to Bryce Canyon. We reached the Bryce Canyon National park to find that only a portion of the park was open but luckily it was the area with the panoramic views over the area of the park with red monolithic spikes jutting out from the ground. The scenery was again beautiful with red rock spikes coming up out of the snow.
We spent an hour at the park and then continued on towards Las Vegas, winding our way down through the mountains and then across the desert to the city of sin.
We checked in to a cheap hotel and then did
Day 7 - We were feeling quite hung over this morning so went for a breakfast buffet, had a lye down in the car and then walked around a few of the elaborate casinos. Las Vegas for me is like a giant playground for adults which typifies Americas self-centered culture - its all about greed and money and materialism - not the place for me.
We did end up leaving with extra money in our pockets, we gambled $4 and walked away with $11 so we can now travel an extra couple of years i'd say.
After another buffet we left and drove back to Los Angeles
