It wasn’t until I started looking through my pictures from Yosemite that I began to realize how magnificent that area is. I spent three days exploring the area in different ways and didn’t manage to figure out what all the fuss was about until just now.
After Vegas I didn’t have much planned for a few days other than getting myself closer to Yosemite. I started out by leaving Las Vegas Tuesday early morning as I had a long (and slightly boring) day of driving ahead of me. The route went through Death Valley and all the way up to Lee Vining which works as the entrance town to Yosemite when coming from east.
I was reluctant to leave Springdale and Zion but I had a few things planned that could help make up for it. First up that day was a quick visit to Valley of Fire State Park.
The shortest route from Bryce Canyon to Springdale – the small town that I was going to spend two nights in while exploring Zion Canyon National Park – actually goes right through Zion. And the glowing red mountains had me mesmerized from the moment I first laid my eyes on them. So it was 14 miles of me alomost pressing my nose flat against the windscreen while trying to focus on driving.
It seems like my favorite place or activity on this trip changes every time I see or try something new.

Friday it was finally time for me to leave Copenhagen and board the plane towards Los Angeles (with a very quick change of flight in London – apparently 1h20min was enough for both me and my suitcase to make it!).
