Many people that we met along our travels in the US told us that Utah is their favorite state. “It’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen,” they would say. But how can you comprehend something never experienced, never seen, touched nor smelled? Would it be as grandiose as the high peaks of Colorado, more engaging than […]
With the worst rain behind us and some uncertain clouds circling around we leave Fort William and follow the blue on blue thistle marked trail posts leading us north out of town and along the Caledonian Canal.
