    ^Great pics of the falls. I was there as a teenager.. don't remember too much. The maid of the mist boat is an experience.

    PS! Just remembered it was three times. Did a ten week consultancy for an airline in Dallas in late 2012 and at the end decided to drive from Dallas to LA via Albuquerque. Driving like that is one of my passions and is shared by my Thai wife as well. But those days are now over.
    Cool,I have relatives that have lived for many years in Phoenix. Hope to get to the grand canyon myself one of these days.
    How did you like living there? I lived in the US twice. A year near Raleigh-Durham in NC, and a few months in Northern Pennsylvania.

    I enjoyed both Denver and Phoenix. Being somewhat into mountains and streams Colorado was amazing. We also enjoyed Phoenix and were doubly fortunate to be living in Scottsdale, one of the better parts of what is now the third largest metropolitan area in the US. I reveled in the hot and generally low humidity environment and found beauty in the Sonora Desert, low country mountains and the Rim country. And we did the obligatory trips to Las Vegas and a helicopter tour into the GC. But never going back, been there, done that.

    Day 5 commenced with the wife and I trying to make sense of an experience in the hotel room overnight. Something quite bizarre happened that we were both aware of as it happened, but experienced in different ways, and didn't realize the other was aware until the morning. No drugs, no alcohol...just something that makes you wonder whether we truly understand everything in this world. Having ticked off Niagara Falls and breakfast we headed towards Buffalo. Plan was to take a more southerly route back to Phoenix. But first we needed to backtrack a bit towards Eire and then turning south on interstate 79. I was really looking forward to the drive but we seemed to spend almost all of the time in narrow valleys with only the occasional coming up to a rise in the road for a bit of a view and then back down again. And most of the valleys were forested and boring. We skirted just to the west of Pittsburgh but you would never know it except for the road signs. We crossed into West Virginia at 1:30pm and into Kentucky at 5:00pm. Was shocked to see an eyesore refinery in Kentucky. Looked so ugly and dirty. We pulled up in Morehead, Kentucky for the night in the Days Inn, a truly awful establishment. 575 miles driven on the day.

    Thanks fb, not seen you around before. If I get enough interest (and more than this thread for sure) I got the following trips I could do:
    - Weekend in Seattle
    - Long weekend drive to Albuquerque/Santa Fe
    - A couple of Las Vegas trips
    - A drive from Atlanta to New York along the Appalachian Mountains
    - Phoenix, Four Corners, Denver, Salt Lake City, Jackson/Grand Tetons/Yellowstone, Reno, San Francisco, Yosemite, Death Valley, Las Vegas and back to Phoenix.

    Could do a ton of others in Australia and SE Asia.

    Regards, -BiP

    Kentucky is not renowned for Mexican food and this place which was adjacent the hotel is certainly not trying to raise the state's average. Took three attempts to get a Mexican beer. Was picking out of the menu, didn't have the first two selections. Food was okay, service a dud.

    Day 6 and we were on the road by 4:30am. It was quite foggy. We had breakfast 90 minutes later, don't know the location but in terms of a restaurant it looks like a Denny's breakfast.

    We then turned south on to interstate 65 and somewhere near Bowling Green we pulled into the most amazing and huge truck and traveler service centre. There were dozens of trucks parked with room for a hundred or more. The service centre building was larger than some shopping malls I've been in. In addition to the convenience store and restrooms, there were full sized laundries, shower rooms, a barber, a full size restaurant, a chapple, a games room, a creche and a member only truckers lounge.
