Traveling across America by Amtrak train from California to NY!
Visited some cities like Salt Lake city, Denver, Chicago, Memphis and etc on the way to travel for several days on the train.
I was amazed with a lot of nature like Rocky mountains, vast lands, snow mountains and etc viewed on the train!
The Valley of Fire is just a short drive from the exciting Las Vegas. In stark contrast to the glittering casinos you will find peace here and an impressive nature in yellow and red colors. A paradise for photographers and nature lovers. A detour on the way north to the famous parks in Utah is worthwhile in any case!
Together with a friend I spent a few days in Las Vegas. We did a hike in the Grand Canyon too, wich is about a 4h drive away.
It's a great experience we made and I will definately come back to the US to see more of the west coast :)
