flyingk8’s Travel Diary

Friday, 18 May 2007

Location: Flagstaff, USA

MapAfter being 'wow'ed by the Grand Canyon, I spent a day doing nothing yesterday. I walked around the town, got soaked when it rained (I left my raincoat in the car), and found an amazing chocolate shop where I bought a whole bag of assorted creamy centred chocolates (yummmmm!!!!!!).
I met a couple of guys at the hostel, Simon & Ed, both from England on Wednesday night and they took a tour to the Grand Canyon yesterday so we met up and all went for dinner lastnight after they got back. We went to an Outback Steakhouse, however the only thing that resembled Australia was the map on the wall! I was starving and managed to eat a 20oz porterhouse. -The boys were impressed!
Simon left for Las Vegas this morning and Ed & I both went on a tour to Sedona. It has to be one of the best days of my trip so far! We hiked up the path to the top of Cathedral Rock and the views were simply amazing! Then Ed and I decided to hike down the valley on a dry streambed rather than taking the path, whilst the others went the sensible way. After much scrambling and taking photos of the incredible view back up behind us we reached the bottom 10 seconds after the others who took the path! We were pretty impressed with our effort!
