Grand Teton National Park

Tue, 6 Oct 2015 | By steveturpin | Views [79]

  So, breakfast at 8! At least this meant we got going a little earlier than usual. Our host, Natalia, a Russian emigre, produced a lovely breakfast and stayed to chat with us and the other guests, a very pleasant start to the day. The sun was ... Read more >

Salt Lake City to Grand Teton NP

Tue, 6 Oct 2015 | By steveturpin | Views [61]

Dog barking! - for a long time so we were awake! Breakfast at the B&B was served, home made waffles with strawberries and maple syrup, delicious, but as we found out later,not very filling. Never mind. On the road, fuel up and headed east, joined ... Read more >

Zion NP to Salt Lake City

Sun, 4 Oct 2015 | By steveturpin | Views [64]

A slight change to our plans as Ruth found a highly recommended B&B in Salt Lake City, rather than at Spanish Fork, a little further away but that would save distance tomorrow. The weather wasn't looking good, we could see heavy clouds over the mountains ... Read more >

Zion National Park

Sat, 3 Oct 2015 | By steveturpin | Views [69]

  We were up early as the room was quite noisy due to the ice making machine being just outside the room. Staggered across to the restaurant for breakfast - Ruth tried the Mexican meal, I stuck to granola and fruit. Mine was delicious....... ... Read more >

Grand Canyon to Zion NP

On the road by 9.30, north into the Grand Canyon again then East on route 64 to Cameron. We took one last look at the Canyon on the way at Grand View, still as fabulous as it was yesterday! At Cameron, we visited the Trading Post, a cornucopia of all ... Read more >

Brief visit to Innsbruck

Fri, 2 Oct 2015 | By shire_girl | Views [147] | Comments [3]

Vienna marked the most eastern point of my trip. From there I headed west. Our neighborhood really does get around. In Innsbruck I stopped for one night to meet up with 2 of our neighbors off on another cycling trip from Innsbruck to Italy. The timing ... Read more >

Vienna

Fri, 2 Oct 2015 | By shire_girl | Views [83]

My 8 day bicycle trip through Austria ended in Vienna. Rather than pay for 2 extra nights in a hotel I looked for a local to stay with. Everyone seemed to be on vacation, but in the end I found a single woman to stay with. She'd just returned from a ... Read more >

Grand Canyon 2

Fri, 2 Oct 2015 | By steveturpin | Views [54]

Up a little earlier today as we planned to hike a trail that gets full sun in the afternoon and becomes very hot. As it was it was 80F as we arrived at the GCNP visitor centre where we were to catch the orange route shuttle bus out to South Kaibab Trailhead.... Read more >

Grand Canyon

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 | By steveturpin | Views [67]

Our hotel was located south of the Park in Tusayan a small town full of hotels and eating places, not at all attractive, but we were only spending the night there (well, three nights actually), so could ignore the place. Up at a reasonable hour despite ... Read more >

Williams Az to the Grand Canyon

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 | By steveturpin | Views [74]

Woken by a loud blast (well several very loud blasts really) from the Grand Canyon train, we had a nice breakfast at The Lodge in Williams before setting off for the Grand Canyon. We decided to go by way of Flagstaff, so out along the Interstate 40, ... Read more >

Islander in London

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 | By karene | Views [72]

"Mind the step as you exit the train. Be sure to take all your belongings with you." Dropped in the morass of people in the underground, all fighting to rise above. Pushing ahead, "keep to your right" as they shove you against the side of the moving ... Read more >

Kingman Az to Williams Az

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 | By steveturpin | Views [89]

No breakfast available at El Trovatore so we wandered back down the hill to town and to the same diner, Mr D'z where we enjoyed blueberry pancakes with bacon. The pancakes defeated Ruth, they were huge, but I managed to finish mine. A walk was now in ... Read more >

Death Valley to Kingman Az

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 | By steveturpin | Views [78]

We decided we had done sunrises, so a more relaxed start to the day. Breakfasted, showered, packed and refuelled the car and we were on our way by 10.30. Not too bad. We drove southeast out of the Park to join highway 127 which put us firmly heading ... Read more >

Death Valley 2

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 | By steveturpin | Views [63]

So, another very early morning start, this time to see the sunrise at Dante's View. As yesterday the temperature before dawn was a very pleasant 70F. So a 17 mile drive, starting in the dark but gradually lightening, the sky turning a delicate shade ... Read more >
