Hoover dam

After Las Vegas we made a stop at impressive Hoover dam
It was interesting to hear the story of how they made the dam, how they forced the water into alternative roads during the building process, how they built in pipes to be able to cool down the concrete so it would harden faster... Did you for instance know that the dam was named Boulder dam from the beginning, after the closest city Boulder (that arose since the workers had to stay somewhere)?

Las Vegas - the city that never sleeps

I must say that Vegas surprised me. I liked it more than I thought I would. 
So historic and so mythical.

Grand amazing Canyon

We saw Grand Canyon in thunderstorm, in the early morning with the sun rising and from above in a helicopter
Let me get back to you with some better pictures from my real camera later this fall...

Roadtrip 2012

So we made a roadtrip. No road trip on the US west coast is complete without San Francisco, Los Angeles and Las Vegas. So those we did of course. 
We also did a few other stops like; Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Death valley, Joshua Tree national park, Muir woods, Sonoma valley, Yosemite national park...
All in all it has been a great trip and not only the big things was impressive, but also seeing the country side, meeting the people who lives there... We´ve seen and experienced a lot, not really sure if we have processed it all yet ;-)
The last days we spent in New York and I also had some final days in Washington DC.
