Obviously when you cross the American West, if there is one thing you can not miss is the Grand Canyon.
So we made a jump of 2 days. On the canyon itself, not much to add that has not already been said. The colors are beautiful, and fluctuate according to the time.
But it is especially the gigantism of the site that leaves speechless.
Impossible to make the picture. We gave up.
It’s immense. Point bar. Wherever your gaze arises you can only be astonished (the word is weak).
So, as we like to do the evil, we wanted to descend into this great canyon. We “are not fiattes” (editor’s note: Manu’s common expression that can be translated as “Would you like to do it with me?”).
So we looked a bit and we took a hiking trail that descends 5km into the said Canyon. And that goes back.
The ascent was terrible. And we remembered our descent limit by gambading, when we met people who climbed up with their faces twisted with pain.
So we made 5km going up. Enjoying all the same the unbeatable beauty of the site. And amazing encounters like real cowboys and kinds of ibex.
A hallucinating and exhausting day.
Ah the United States …
Talking about the United States is useless. You have to get there. See this country in all its excess.
We have traveled a little in all directions. A first time, it was in 2012, during a first roadtrip that would take us from the east coast to the west coast. Then a few months later, we returned to the USA to discover the beautiful area of North East and Boston. And lastly, we were able to fly back to Seattle to discover the incredible northwest region.
These 3 Road Trips allowed us to discover the country under its different faces, its astonishing culture and also all its excesses. In total, we have traveled more than 20,000 km for weeks, and made incredible encounters, as the kindness of the Americans is contagious.
And from those trips to the United States, we brought back memories full of head. The arrival in New York and this feeling that everything here is bigger, more photogenic, more arty. Then Washington and its capitol. Savannah, New Orleans, the immensity of Texas, New Mexico and deserts as far as the eye can see. Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, all these cities and destinations so amazing, these cities so different but always mind-blowing.
We will let you discover our articles on the United States below, and even the files when we have plenty to tell.
