American Road Trip: 4 States in 4 Days pt. 2
Sooooooooo… The story continues!! I hope you all enjoyed last weeks post featuring part one of my American Road Trip adventures – if you missed it, click here to go take a read before coming back to finish the story!
We decide to opt for another night of car camping!
We are terribly low maintenance!
This night I could not sleep for love nor money through fear that we were going to get woken up by someone telling us off!
However, on the plus side, we were very close to the bus stop that I needed to get to for my hike.
Bry and I separated as she has already done the hike and has some laptop life to do!
I set off on the bus which takes us to the start of the hike. It’s about 8 am so it’s surprisingly chilly!
I have my new Walmart backpack with inbuilt camelpak straw, perfect for hiking, and I am off.
As the sun is coming up over the mountains, the rock lights up, glowing from white all the way to the darkest shades of red and orange.
It is BEAUTIFUL!!
After navigating the 21 hairpin bends of Walter’s Wiggles, reaching the top, that’s where the ‘real’ fun began.
It was all fun and games until then!!
Angels landing is one of the most dangerous hikes in USA with vertical drops of 1500 either side of the rocky ‘path’ with only a chain to hold onto. The views are phenomenal and it is worth every bead of sweat when you reach the top and look over the mountains.
This is not one for people with fear of heights!!
Overall I think the hike from start to finish including the bus rides took me just under 4hrs.
(I did a meditation and a journalling session too!)
They recommend 3-6 hrs total depending on fitness levels. I headed back to meet Bry at a crystal shop and grabbed some lunch. We squeezed in another hike before driving to the outskirts of the park where we managed to manifest a room at Zion Mountain Ranch which was a total dream after multiple nights of car camping!!!
We enjoyed a dinner of home-grown vegetables and fresh fish with a glass of wine and some copywriting.
Next stop: Bryce Canyon.
It used to be underwater, so if you imagine all of the rock formations in the little mermaid, but with the water drained out, that is what it looked like. I’ve never seen anything like it!
Although it was a little further out, and meant we had pretty much a straight run on the i15 for what felt like 100 hrs on the way home, it was completely worth it!
Tips for surviving the i15 drive: Country music, copious amounts of coffee. Car snacks.
So there we go, a short but sweet ending to an epic road trip!
We set ourselves up with a pretty big mission to get around 4 states in only 4 days, but we did it and it was truly amazing!!
Have a great day!
