Hello, Johnny Thunder here. Welcome to my travel journal. You may have seen me and my friends in some of our other adventures. From Egypt to Asia; from the Lost World to the Amazon; we've been everywhere. Now, however, I would like to extend an invitation to join me on a tour through the real world.

The Lost Adventures

Here are some more pictures from trips I've taken that didn't seem big enough for their own separate updates:

Carmel-by-the-Sea, California: a little sea side village on the coast of California.

Garnet Hill, Nevada. A hill in eastern Nevada where you can dig your own garnet.

The car in which Bonnie and Clyde were killed. Now kept as a tourist attraction in a small casino in Verdi, Nevada.

Temple Square. Cite of the Mormon Temple, in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Fort Churchill. The ruins of an old cavalry fort in Central Nevada.

Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks

For our latest travel, Pippin and I went adventuring in Utah and vistied Bryce Canyon National Park and Zion National Park.

Our first stop took us to Bryce Canyon, home of strange free standing rock formations called hoodoos. This one is called Thor's Hammer. We also took a walk along the Queen's Garden trail, so named because this rock looks a bit like Queen Victoria. Also found within the canyon are natural bridges, ravens and deer.

After leaving Bryce Canyon we travelled southwest to Zion. Zion is home to rugged red cliffs and narrow canyons, which are carved by the Virgin River. Here we are at Weeping Rock, where water seeps from the cliff face. Scientists estimate the water fell on the tops of the cliffs several thousand years ago.

That's all for this adventure. Happy Travels!
