The favorite month for lovebirds started with a bang. Our friends moved to Austin, TX, which was painful, but we spent the last few days together and helped them in their move. Coincidentally, they left for Austin on the same day, we were leaving for LA.
This one was our longest road trip so far with a duration of almost 23 hours. We just loved the trip and crossed beautiful places like Colorado, Utah, and Vegas. Even our Valentine’s day was celebrated in Zion National Park with some good hikes and wonderful coffee at Feellove cafe, Zion.
During the whole month, we visited 3 national parks each unique and equally beautiful in its own way. While Zion National Park was full of red rocks, deep canyons, and challenging hiking trails, Yosemite was bitter cold, snow-clad, beautiful, and overcrowded. The waterfalls of Yosemite were unmatchable and words fell short for the famous Firefall.
To simply put, the Joshua Tree National Park was the representation of beauty and life in the desert. The cactuses and the similar height and textured Joshua trees were the stars of this park. The San Diego Zoo, the most visited zoo in the U.S., was on our list for a long time. Especially after reading West with Giraffes by Lynda Rutledge, we were more inclined to visit the place and were not disappointed at all.
