Beautiful rock formations at Red Rock Canyon State Park. You can actually see some of them from your drive along SR 14. There is a campsite at this park and a visitor center that was sadly closed. Did you know there are 118 state parks in California? All representing the amazing landscape diversity in our state. Maybe that should be our next goal to visit them all, might take longer than one year though 😉. - - #castateparks #californiastateparks #explorecalifornia #redrockcanyon #moreoutdooradventures #getoutside #optoutside #landscapephotography #familyhikes #kidhikes

Did we swing by Utah on our way home from Death Valley? Nope this is Red rock canyon state park California located on SR 14 south of Death Valley . We were on a time crunch to get home so our hike was short but totally worth the detour. #notutah #getoutside #optoutside #familyhikes #cameramama #redrockcanyon #tinybigadventure #californiastateparks #castateparks #explorecalifornia

Southbank in the grey with the river at high tide. The Thames is liquid history with evidence of Human activity stretching back to Roman Times. I’ve both rowed and swum in this River although not quite this section, it’s over 200 miles long! London doesn’t put on its best show in January, it’s usually kind of gloomy and damp. Still it was an interesting jaunt down memory lane. #london🇬🇧 #london #iphonepic #southbank #riverthameslondon #riverthames #lonelytravels

Whoever said you can travel faster alone but further together clearly never travelled with a three year old. Just got back from a trip to London to attend the memorial service of a dear family friend ( @emblaze2 Claire’s Dad) and I can safely say that I travelled further AND faster by myself #lonelytravels #london🇬🇧 #trafalgarsquare #iphonepic #london

We loved our short little trip and cant wait to go back. Here’s some planning info from our trip . We camped at Furnace Creek campground. Is the most centrally located campground to most of the sights you’ll want to see in Death Valley on your first trip. The week between Christmas and New Year is one of the busiest in the park. The campground was full the whole time we were there . I booked the site 4 months in advance. We were there for three nights, two full days with a day of travel on either end but we easily could have filled another day at the park. The places we visited in the park are accessible with a regular vehicle but there are others that are remote that require a high clearance four wheel drive. temps in December are mild 60s-70s in the day dropping to 30s-40s at night. Death Valley is a recognized dark skies park but if you want to see the stars at their best you’ll have to Time your trip with the lunar cycle and go when there’s a new moon. #deathvalleynationalpark #deathvalley #familyhikes #americasbestidea #nps #getoutside #neverstopexploring #optoutside
