USA - Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, Utah

The landscape between Page and Zion National Park only got more amazing, we felt like we were in the Wild West with red rocky formations protruding out of the desert floor. We stopped off to see ‘The Toadstools’ a short hike into a valley full of odd shaped rocks somehow balancing precariously.

Then we drove into the southern side of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument where the ghost town of Paria lies. Used as an old set for Country Western movies, it was such a beautiful place to see, with different shades of colour through the rocks ranging from purple, green and red.

After a year of busing through South America, we’re really enjoying the luxury of travelling with a car, being able to stop when and where we want.
