Back when we became nomads we bought a big old RV and set off on a 6 month roadtrip across the southern most states of the US. We visited Guadeloupe Mountain, Texas; Petrified Forest and the Grand Canyon, Arizona; and in Utah, Bryce, Zion and Arches.
Each park was unique and provided some of the most challenging and awesome hikes and sights we’ve experienced. We hiked rim to rim and back again across the Grand Canyon, camping down by the Colorado River; got a little freaked on the final ascent of Angel’s Landing in Zion; hiked Guadeloupe Mountain in Texas for sensational views; and were blown away by the unusual features of both Petrified Forest and Bryce.
There are many less strenuous activites to enjoy too if you aren’t partnered with an adrenaline junkie One of my favorite moments was just sitting on the rim of the Grand Canyon watching the sunset.
We bought both State Park and National Park passes. Great value, providing special deals and free camping nights, with impressive services provided by the park rangers.
Looking forward to being inspired by your National Park adventures!
