Back home after 24 days in the USA. It's good to be back, even if it's a bit cold! Los Angeles is having unseasonably hot weather so it was a shock to get back into Heathrow. Saying that it has been cold in a few places in the USA. We had temps down to -6C one night at the Grand Canyon. Also a few days of rain and thunder, which made it different.
So many highlights. Yosemite, Bryce Canyon, Zion, Grand Canyon, Canyonlands, Arches, Vegas (!) and just general travelling round. I will do some trip reports in a while, need to do washing first!
As far as my challenge goes, I did 7 walks over 3 miles in length which is a good start. Also 13 nights under the stars and 3 in the tent. Lying there in a cosy warm sleeping bag watching the stars is just a perfect feeling. Many nights there were so many stars you couldn't make out the obvious formations as there are just so many, many more twinkling away.
Only injury is a calf strain picked up in Arches, was a cramp or strain that is still twinging a little. Hopefully if I'm careful I can get some walks in this week. Need to boost the mileage average!
