Grand Canyon: a 4,000-mile deja-vu from the air

Years ago, two friends and I did a 3-week roadtrip across California, Arizona, Nevada and Utah. We travelled 4,000 miles across all the major landmarks of the American Southwest: Napa and Sonoma, Muir Woods, Big Sur, Yosemite, Death Valley, the Mojave Desert, Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Zion, Fire Valley and Lake Tahoe. We spent a night sleeping in the car, under the stars in the desert in Monument Valley (don't tell the national park service!). We hiked down and up Grand Canyon in a day. We climbed to the top of the Yosemite waterfalls. And, best of all, when it was all over and we took the plane from San Francisco back east, we flew over Yosemite, Zion, Grand Canyon and Monument Valley. Watching all this beauty from above was "deja-vu all over again".
