In the USA

Arrived safely in the USA.  SF was fantastic..  We walked so much and saw so much.  Walked from The Hilton to the Golden Gate Bridge.   walked over the bridge and back.  wow sore feet but a great day.
We then flew to Las Vegas.  Tinsel town  LOL   Celine Dion concert was amazing as was the Helicopter down the Grand Canyon.   with Champagne breakfast and a delicious food hamper. Only 2 days in Vegas.   Photos tomorrow when we have resized. 
I caught a cold in Vegas which went to my chest.  Grrrrrr  I barked worse than a dog.  LOL  ended up at the Dr's in Jackson.  What with the altitude in Yellowstone and Teton being as high as 9,000 feet above sea level.   I gasped for breath and coughed .... On anti- Biotics and cough bottle and recovering well.  
The we flew onto Denver got into our rental car and headed up to South Dakota.   where we met my long time friend Maria.  (photos to follow).   Fabulous time in Spearfish, Rapid City. Mt Rushmore.
We will post photos as time permits.
We left South Dakota and arrived in Yellowtone National Park and onto Jackson Hole.  Staying at Jackson in a Condo.... very comfy.   We are here until Saturday when we leave for Dubois to meet up with Gary and his wife Vicki. can't wait to see them.
Then to Rawlins for a night and then to Denvor for our flight to Charlotte.  I will leave it there until we have sorted out some pics....we have thousands already. 
We love the USA.  
Lots more to post.....  soooooon.   Love to all and hope you are having fun painting.  I can see I will have lots to catch up on.  But for now we are having so much fun.

Love hearing of your trip, Dors. Mt. Rushmore actually brought tears to my eyes in its magnificent scope and beauty.

I just commented to Jan yesterday that I wondered when we'd see a Blog post from you. What an exciting trip.
So sorry to hear about your cold. The Grand Canyon/helicopter ride is quite spectacular isn't it?
Look forward to seeing your photos soon.
Take care and hope you soon feel 100% again.

How exciting!! I hope you'll get over your illness quickly. Get yourself some "Airborne" especially when confined in tight spaces like airplanes, etc. to prevent getting sick again (you'll find it in drugstores or grocery stores...good stuff)
Have fun!! ;-)
We'll leave for our trip next Wednesday to Beijing. Wohoo!!
