We spent a wonderful 2 days in Arcadia National Park over Thanksgiving. Fall and winter are great times to visit as the crowds are less but you might have some weather to contend with.
Sat at transition point of two deserts; the Colorado Desert and the Mojave Desert., Joshua Tree National Park is a fascinating exploration of desert ecosystems.
A trip to the Pueblo ruins at Mesa Verde National Park. On the way we stopped at the famous four corners, where Utah, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico meet.
A day trip to the infamous prison island of Alcatraz in San Francisco and watching the sea lions on Pier 39.
A short trip to explore the infamous Death Valley in the height of the summer heat. We must be mad!
Today we decided to head off to Canyonlands National Park. After doing some research prior to going we decided the best way to see everything was going off-road in a car.
