After Arcosanti, we kept on going south into Arizona where we headed to Phoenix and stayed in Tuscon for a few days. It was hot and sunny of course and we loved this part of Arizona. We went to see the US Army Aircraft Boneyard which is located a bit South-East of Tuscon, in the […]
On the route down from Flagstaff to Phoenix, we stopped and stayed in Arcosanti. This experimental city is a unique place as it was imagined by an Italian architect who began its construction in the 70s with volunteers from all around the world. Today its construction is still ongoing and people come there to contribute for […]

After the Death Valley, we headed North to reach Bryce Canyon. On the way up, we did take a quick detour to cruise Las Vegas by car but didn’t stop there. We had a pleasant night in a very old fashioned motel near Bryce Canyon where the tenant asked me if I really was French […]

A part of me is still there, in the wild. Our USA West Coast and National Parks roadtrip was amazing, surely the most stunning we ever had so far with such a strong feeling of freedom. I’ll give more details about it along with the next photo posts.
