| a roadtrip #crestcontest |

In the summer of 2017 I've been on a roadtrip with my family and friends. We decided not to drive the popular round trip in the West (SF, LA, Yosemite, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon), but to tour from Las Vegas to the northern (via Yellowstone) and eastern direction and end our trip in Denver...

It turned out to be a trip (21 days) full of extremes: * from Sin City Vegas to Mormon Salt Lake City * from hot dry weather to cold humid weather * from deep canyons to high mountain peaks A roadtrip to remember! Let me take you to our hotspots!

I divided this story in 3 parts: the western part the northern part the eastern part

Western part (warm weather & colors, Indian history, breathtaking views, canyons) Las Vegas Lake Powell Antelope Canyon Horseshoe Bend Grand Canyon North Rim Coral Pink Sanddunes Zion Cedar Breaks

Do's: ➳ Visit Jackson Hole, a vivid western village near Grand Teton, buy a pair of cowboy boots and have dinner at Genevieve's ➳ Swim in crystal clear Lake Jenny after a walk in Grand Teton ➳ Don't expect to be alone in Yellowstone ;o)
