Trip Highlights

Throughout our drive across America, when we told people what we were doing, the immediate and repeated question has been “what’s been your favourite place ?”

It is a difficult question to answer, as there have been many and varied highlights.  With a country as large and diverse as the USA, comparing one experience to another is both a difficult but also an unfair comparison.

Hence, following (in no particular order) is a list of some of my highlights (I won’t be so presumptive to try and pen a list on Jane’s behalf):

  • the moment the helicopter flew over the rim of the Grand Canyon, revealing the canyon floor one and a half miles below the glass bubble we were flying in.
  • hiring a speedboat on Lake Powell, exploring the glass-like lake without encountering a single other boat on the water
  • looking across the border from El Paso into Mexico at the lights stretching for miles in every direction
  • long drives listening to CNN radio reports of the Republican Primary race, giving us a small insight into the circus that is the US Presidential election process
  • being “educated” in Outlaw Country music by the “Slim Chance & the Can’t Hardly Playboys” band at Layla’s Bluegrass Inn in Nashville
  • sharing it all with Jane
