This was my 2nd Trek, the first had left such an impact on me I had to come back and this time brought my bro and a mate, all of us had amazing time.
The shortness of the mini treks are ideal if you have limited time and other plans, we wanted some time in Vegas before and after the trip so this works perfectly for those sort of plans.
The drive is long and beautiful on those western trails, route 66 and passing gorgeous canyons is just sureal. And all the stops were worth the drive.
The cowboy camp - a great night with that traditional feel and we ate like champions the food was really good. We got a campfire going and it was just a bloody good night.
Really worth doing the horse trail, it's not galloping but scenic and relaxing, such a great way to take in the surroundings.
Monument valley - probably one of the most beautiful locations I've seen, the formation of the valley it's as if it was designed for photos. Sleeping in the Hogan was a great choice, ok sleeping itself was difficult, its a hard floor and you will wake up with red dirt all over, but honestly don't let that put you off choosing to stay in the hogan - the meal provided by the hosts was delicious, chilling with them and the other trekkers sharing stories around the fire was just great, and if you are lucky for clear skies the stars or moon from the valley is a true sight, it's all well worth a bit of a rough sleep.
Grand canyon - I had been there before but I really wanted my brother to get that once in a lifetime experience of seeing it for the first time. so cliche to say but you simply cant describe or capture it in photos. Trek america is a great way to experience that
