USA Grand Northern - Advice please :)

16 Jan 2012 Leah asked


I am an Aussie going on the USA Grand Northern tour in October 2012. I am wondering what I should check out while I am over there!? What we're the highlights/crap parts about this trip? Is there anything that you recommend we take or do? Thanks! :)

    i’m doing the tour in july – so when i get back i’ll let you know.
    but one thing pack some warm clothes – my friend has done this tour and some of the places durring summer were cold.
    I’m looking forward to canada, vegas is always fun. The Grand Canyon is amazing, and i can’t wait to see niagra falls.
    so i’ll let you know when i get back what i enjoyed (everyone is different) and hopefully that’ll help.
