The Grand Circle: USA Road Trip


Road trip through USA’s most incredible national parks.

I went on a 2 week journey through some of the most beautiful places in the world, as we travel through Zion, Bryce, Arches, Mesa Verde & The Grand Canyon.

Travelling through 4 different states: Nevada, Utah, Colorado and Arizona, The Grand Circle loop really showcases the best of America.

Our journey begins with Zion National Park, included the Angel’s Landing trail.

Then onto Bryce Canyon National Park for the Peek-a-boo loop.

Next we head through Capitol Reef to Moab to explore Arches, Canyonlands and Dead Horse Point.

Turning south we go to Colorado to check out Mesa Verde National Park.

Finally we head passed Monument Valley to Grand Canyon National Park, where I hike the Bright Angel trail to the bottom and back in one day.

  1. On this trip we went to some of the most STUNNING national parks in the USA!! Of course there’s plenty more to see, which other ones would you recommend to see? Yosemite and Yellowstone are 2 of my other favourites.

    Btw, this is a re-upload of an old video due to copyright issues with the music.

Last time we went to the Grand Caynon was on a wedding anniversery and by helicopter..Vegas was a loss to me a but the the downtown mall did a fantastic rock music/video effects show on the roof of the Mall.

    1. Cheers Paul. We wouldn’t normally eat meals that big, although we did work up an appetite each day through hiking 🙂 Definitely wanna do a trip to Hawaii at some point.
