This morning, set out west for Kanab where the exhilarating scent of sage and cedar fills the clear southwest air, then head north to Utah's Bryce Canyon National Park. Famous for its unique geology, Bryce Canyon consists of a series of horseshoe-shaped amphitheatres where the power of wind, water and geologic mayhem has etched the pink cliffs and shaped the colourful limestone rock into thousands of spires called "hoodoos".

Day 7: BRYCE CANYON - ZION NATIONAL PARK - LAS VEGAS

This morning, travel north into the High Sierra where Tioga Road, the highest drivable pass in California, leads you into Yosemite National Park. Delve into the depths of the park with a walk to a waterfall, each as distinct as the granite cliffs they dive over, or learn about the wonders of the park during a ranger-guided stroll. Explore a giant sequoia grove and meet the most massive trees on earth, or spend an evening under the stars. With approximately 800 miles of trails, Yosemite is also a great place to hike. **From early November to late May, Tioga Pass may be closed due to weather or road conditions, in which case you will need to drive the southern route through Bakersfield and Fresno into the Yosemite area.

Day 11: YOSEMITE - LAKE TAHOE

Leave the wonder of Yosemite behind as you journey north via Bridgeport and Devil's Gate Pass en route to Lake Tahoe.
