We left for our honeymoon on the Sunday morning after the wedding. We started out by flying from London, Heathrow to Chicago. After spening three nights in Downtown Chicago (visiting Ruth's Chris steak house one night and seeing U2 at the United Center) we flew onto Seattle, WA, that's where the driving began.

After 2 nights in Seattle we drove down the I-5 though the states of Washington, Oregon and stopped for the first night at Weed, California in the shadow of Mt. Shasta. Continuing south we stopped for 2 nights in South Lake Tahoe, and another two in the heart of Yosemite National Park. From the piece and queit of the national park we went onto the hustle-and-bustle of Las Vegas!! We stayed in the Mirage for 3 nights, before driving to the south rim of the Grand Canyon via the Hoover Dam.

After an early morning flight over the canyon, we continued east and followed an anti-clockwise trip around the Grand Canyon. After a day of driving around the canyon, we stopped for our final night in St. George, Utah. The following day we completed the round trip and returned to Las Vegas for our flight home via Los Angeles.

A selection of the photos from the trip can be found for the following places: Chicago, Seattle, Lake Tahoe, Yosemite National Park, Las Vegas and Hoover Dam & Grand Canyon.
