The next USA event is planned for August 2022.  Details on cost, flights and visa please contact Michael via michaelwk16@yahoo.com

 

This will be a road trip to remember covering 7 National Parks ( including - Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Sequoia & Zion),  across 4 states (California, Arizona, Utah & Nevada) and 7 different accommodation locations. There will be 9 hiking days and this includes the infamous Half Dome hike up in the granite mountains of Yosemite, trails through giant Sequoia & Redwood trees and the best hikes down to the base of the Grand Canyon and the heights of Zion National Park.  We will drive along the pacific coast along the infamous the Pacific Highway 1 to Francisco via Monterey.
