WEEKEND ROAD TRIPS FROM LOS ANGELES / ORANGE COUNTY
10:00 PM

WEEKEND ROAD TRIPS FROM LOS ANGELES / ORANGE COUNTY

Over Thanksgiving weekend, I decided that it could be a great idea to go camping in the mid of winter. Considered all the states bordering California and came up with these 3 to make up a 6 day long road trip: Nevada, Utah and Arizona. For those of you interested in doing the same, I have shared the itinerary destinations and photos below. Enjoy!

Leaving From Los Angeles / Orange County, this trip is a perfect tour thru Nevada, Utah and Arizona.
  • Las Vegas - 1 night
  • Utah - Zion National Park -2 nights (of below 30 degree camping if you dare) - Watchman Campgrounds
    • Hikes: 
      • Angel's Landing Trail - This is a treacherous hike not for a beginner! Advisable to leave the peak before sunset or bring headlamps.
      • Observation Point Trail (This one is not as difficult as Angel's landing) - Longer hike kind of a let down when you finally get to the top.
  • Arizona - Horseshoe bend - drive / walk thru must see
  • Arizona - Lower Antelope Canyon - drive / walk thru must see
  • Arizona - Grand Canyon - 1 night - Mather South Rim Camgrounds
    • Hikes:
      • Grand Canyon South Rim hikes - South Kaibab Trail to Skeleton Point. Must do at least to the ooh aah point which is only 1 mile in.
  • Arizona - Sedona & Phoneix- drive thru
  • California - Salvation Mountain - drive thru (I didn't have time for this unfortunately).
Follow me on:
Las Vegas, Nevada - New high rises

Utah - Zion National Park
Utah - Angel's Landing Trail
Utah - Top of Angel's Landing right before sunset.
Utah - Observation Point Trail
Arizona - Horseshoe bend
Arizona - Antelope Canyon
Phoenix, Arizona - Lux Coffee Shop. Possibly one of the cutest coffee shops ever.
