The USA holds a dear place in my heart. It is our next door neighbour, I lived there for 4 years during Optometry school, and it is where my dad lives. It is such a diverse country with a bit of everything for everyone. The Pacific NorthWest is my very favourite area, but I am definitely biased as I once called Portland home.
Some of nature’s most spectacular treasures can be found in the US. The Grand Canyon is definitely one of these and Toroweap is the Grand Canyon at it’s absolute best!
I don’t love to pre-plan my itinerary when we travel as it feels restricting, but sometimes it just has to happen. Read my post on Alaska, how much can we fit in to get an idea of our pre-planned itinerary. A short tourist season, expensive prices and limited time made pre-planning this vacation a must.
