Day Thirty Three: Completely Amazing

Today was one of those days which made my decision to do my trip through an RV tour company seem brilliant.  While I appreciate the fact that I’m not traveling alone and I’ve made some great friends, the activities we get to do have all been just great.  On this particular day, there is zero chance I would have gone to the place on my own; every single person on the tour said the same thing.  But it was just an amazing experience and we all loved every minute of it.
