2). Camp under the stars
  • Bryce Canyon Hoodoos

    Few experiences can beat sleeping under canvas (or even out in the open under a blanket of stars), especially if your bed for the night is in one of the most beautiful natural environments in the world. We're talking about the National Parks of the USA's west - Yosemite's thundering falls and Bryce Canyon's famous Hoodoos are never far away when you're sleeping in amongst Mother Nature's finest locations.
