Back in the UK

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!
