After finishing 10 weeks working at an american summer camp over on the East coast with a week to do some sightseeing I wanted to see the West coast before having to go home. So when I saw this trek and what it had to offer; ticking off the top places on my bucket list, I knew this would be the perfect trip. The group I travelled with were great and our trek leader Emily was friendly, approachable and full of knowledge, cannot say one bad word about her. I have never been a massive camping person so was a bit sceptical about camping for 2 nights, but I have to say it wasn't as too bad and was actually quite fun. The first stop over was at Lake Havasu and WOW what a beautiful camp site we stayed at. Right next to the waters edge (perfect for a cool down), camping under the stars. We then hit Grand Canyon and words can honestly not describe how AMAZING it is. It honestly looked like a backdrop when looking out from the rim. Our trek guide highlighted some areas around the national park, told us a time and place to meet (to set up camp) and left us all to explore. After exploring and setting up camp our trek leader then took us up to a spot on the GC rim to eat pizza and watch the sunset. Last stop over was Las Vegas; not going to lie I wasn't too fussed about it at first but Emily told me about everything that Las Vegas had to offer (other than drinking and gambling) and on arrival till the time we left I was memorised by it all. Our hotel was AWESOME; great location, clean,
