My wife and I recently did a trip to the southwest USA (Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Colorado). We visited some of the major national parks in those states and had an amazing trip. We spent a few days in Las Vegas on the way back. One of the fun activities we did was shoot an automatic belt fed machine gun from a helicopter with Gunship Helicopter Tours https://gunshiphelicopters.com/. It was incredible! I highly recommend it!
I'll post more pics later from our trip. No paddling, but amazing places in nature worth sharing for sure.
