Planning our US roadtrip from Santa Fe to San Francisco

The days seem to be flying by as our #USroadtrip approaches and we still have so much to organise!

We now have the route planned and we’re busy trying to book accommodation and decide on some hikes in the national parks we’ll be hitting along the way.

After a few days in Santa Fe, where I’m planning to check out some of the museums and hit the shops, the first stop on our roadtrip will be the Grand Canyon.

Amazing views at the Grand Canyon

After doing lots of trekking in South America and New Zealand, I can’t wait to do some serious hiking in the canyon. Although the problem at the moment seems to be trying to narrow down the choices!

We’ll spend a couple of nights in the canyon before driving to Las Vegas, via the Hoover Dam. After all of the stories I’ve heard about it I’m looking forward to seeing the craziness of Vegas.

The next day we’ll be on our way to Death Valley, before driving to Yosemite for some more hiking. I’ve heard so many good things about the park and I can’t wait to see it for myself.

Our trip ends in San Francisco, a city I’ve always wanted to visit. We’re hoping to try out airbnb for the first time, so any tips are welcome.

I’ll be posting updates on my trip using the hashtag #USroadtrip. If you have any recommendations of places to stay or things to do, I’d love to hear them!
