Bryce Canyon

Bryce canyon National Park is situated in Utah in the Colorado plateau. It is only a couple of hours drive from Zion National Park. This is a unique and stunning site well known for its colorful hoodoos.
I must say that the wild life has been extremely cooperative :o)
I let you enjoy the pictures (don't forget to click on them to see them full screen):

Grand Canyon

We didn't have time to do the Grand Canyon but, as I was arriving in Las Vegas several hours before Stephane, I took an helicopter tour to go there.
The airport is next to the strip so we had a nice view for take off and we flew over when we came back. That was a fantastic experience. We landed in the canyon and enjoyed a champagne picnic. It was full of flowers at that time of the year!

Las Vegas

I am now back in sunny Dundee! We tried hard to stay a few more days but despite the volcano and some strikes, we made it back as planned...
As usual, I took far too many pictures (about 3500) so it will take me some time to go through all of them. I've decided to show you pictures from Las Vegas first. It was very impressive. What a fun. It was mobbed with people. We didn't win much at the casino (Stephane won $11, but we spent $25) so we had to come back to work and earn some money for our next trip!I let you enjoy the pictures...

Just a quick post to show you a little photo montage I put together quickly. I am in Colorado for a week. Today we were in Rocky Mountain National Park. We had some snow but the weather was nice. We saw some elk, mountain bluebirds and chipmunks.

Tomorrow we are going south for 3 days, to visit Mesa verde national park and Great Sand Dunes national park.
I am not sure I will have time to post anymore pictures before heading west, so you'll have to way till I come back in 3 weeks.
