    I am so sorry Lisa and I couldn't hook up with you and the family. Lisa and I like camping at Skull Rock. We love hiking in JT Monument Park.

    I am truly amazed that you fit all that driving in. It is not an easy task.

    Thank you for sharing these great pictures!

    Big shame I didn't get to meet you guys, but unfortunately I was on a tight schedule I enjoyed Joshua tree, due to our tight schedule didn't get to do any serious hikes just an hour at this location and an hour at that one, with some shorter round trips). Oh well maybe next time

    My appologies to the other guys as well as I realised we were on a tight schedule so I didn't think it would be possible to meet up (also especially for the first few days we were pretty jetlagged so we would wake up early in the morning and would be shattered by about 20 hours,).

    I was surprised I really enjoyed death valley as well with lots of.different scenery, from more rocky canyons to sand dunes. Unfortunately Dantes View was closed due to road works.

    Had a great time, but due to time constraints and the kids (quite rightly) wanting a bit more free time we slightly altered our plans, we skipped monument valley and Sedona , I guess these are on our list for next time .


    We had great weather for the whole trip apart from the evening travelling from the Grand Canyon to the California border (near Joshua Tree) when we had some spectacular thunder storms to entertain us.


    In LA My youngest daughter enjoyed shopping but I went with my eldest to drive Mulholland drive, I guess I'd seen so many films with it in, I had to see it for myself. Plus our hotel was about 5 minutes away. Really enjoyed the Observatory got to look through the telescope in the evening and visited during the day as well (for the best photo of the Hollywood sign )

    Great pictures, looks like you did it right. Nothing like watching the F 18's in Death Valley. Glad you enjoyed DV, I have been going down there for years but never when it was as hot as when you were visiting.


    Good trip Dad.


    Burning fossil fuel and loving it!!

    We had a great time in Vegas, as you said we had sore feet whilst walking about in the evening. My youngest took a helicopter ride with Mrs Cloggy, also got picked up with a limousine which made her feel very special we tried to persuade my eldest but she had a fear of heights (strangely enough not on the larger planes), and as I have flown by helicopter many times whilst in the air force (many years ago) we went off to do something different,

    we played a virtual reality game at the MGM Grand, which I enjoyed as well, with goggles, headset, backpack and weapon, definately fun.
    We really enjoyed the valley of fire state park, it was a bit of a smaller scale than some of the other parks but great fun scrambling around the rocks, it was also close by which left the kids with some spare time in the afternoon.

    We stayed at the" Holiday Inn Club Vacations at Desert Club Resort" about a block from the strip, but ideal for the family, we got a lot more than was advertised on Booking .com but I think this was because it was a timeshare which the park hired out. It was also handy as it had it's own kitchen area so we could save a few dollars by cooking for ourselves. Vegas was a perfect break in our otherwise busy schedule .

    Ahhh, my former employer. I worked there for five years. Great choice, I always recommend Sundance even though I probably don't know but maybe a few pilots now, but they will pick you up and take you back to your hotel in a real limousine. Pictured is a Eurocopter EC130, but now has been renamed to an Airbus Helicopter H130. You're one of several forum members who have flown with them.

    Thanks for the extra info., my daughter felt like a real movie star when she got picked up, and she (and my wife) had an amazing experience.
