I see great pictures of the Canyons and National Parks of the USA – can you help with touring ideas?
What a lovely and really once in a lifetime place to visit.
Plus if you are going all that way, why not include Las Vegas which is just a short hop form the west coast airports?
We have found a great option and have posted the details below.
Some information about these destinations:
Rapid City, Denver
You can have it all, from adrenaline-charged outdoor activities to thoughtful cultural pursuits and all the heart-stopping scenery in between. When you stay in Rapid City, you’re within an hour’s drive of five national parks and monuments and surrounded by a local culture that’s rich with history and artistic expression. In this land where gemstones and natural wonders have been forming for eons, even the smallest roadside stand holds the promise of a big discovery

Yellowstone National Park
World’s Largest Collection of Geysers
It’s a Wonderland. Old Faithful and the majority of the world’s geysers are preserved here. They are the main reason the park was established in 1872 as America’s first national park—an idea that spread worldwide. A mountain wildland, home to grizzly bears, wolves, and herds of bison and elk, the park is the core of one of the last, nearly intact, natural ecosystems in the Earth’s temperate zone.
