Adrian, a good friend from Buenos aires now living in London, was going to be on the West Coast for holiday. He was in search of an adventure. I suggested we take a road trip and visit a few of our national parks and monuments, Especially Given their uncertain future with the current administration's desire to cut funding to a number of them. For a week Adrian and I road tripped Through California, Nevada, Arizona, and Utah. We visited The Mojave Desert, Joshua Tree, Hoover Dam, Bryce Canyon, Zion, The Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Canyonlands, Arhces, and Death Valley. The running joke of the trip was that we went on a "Rock Tour."
