This is a trip report of our 3 week holiday starting and ending in Las Vegas, via Zion, Bryce, Grand Canyon, Encinitas, Los Angeles, Monterey Peninsula, Big Sur, San Francisco, Yosemite and Death Valley. Decided to do this for three reasons .
1. To hopefully help others planning a similar trip.
2. To put back something to people using this site after all the helpful advice I’ve received in planning my trip.
3. To give us a chance to relive what was a brilliant holiday!
Trip was to celebrate my 50th birthday, and there were just the two of us. I like hiking and scenery, while my wife Janette prefers cities, coast and culture, so I planned the trip to give a mixture of both.
I’ll post each day separately and give a link to other days of the trip report when they are posted on another forum.
Warning : these reports contain opinions and may cause offence! These are only based on brief visits to each place, and are honest opinions, so include both likes and dislikes. Hope you enjoy them, and I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have.
