Leg 7 – North America Oakland Bay Bridge San Francisco! That is a tram. Alcatraz… Despite driving over it, this is the best view I got of the Golden Gate Bridge Still got the arm warmers on in ‘sunny’ California The first Redwood forest Chandelier Tree It’s too big to get in the bloody picture! A beach in Newport (not the Welsh one) Not quite sure why I was this close to the snow line.. Straight out of the forest, into a desert The Palouse region.. I wish my spokes always broke with a view like this… It’s really not… More emptiness.. This place felt even emptier than the Nullarbor The centre of North America! The Mississippi River How can this be a lake!? A lump of peanut butter and marshmallows… not a bad welcome to Canada! The storm still got me 5 days later, and still on Lake Superior I found this waterfall… Reckon it will become a big tourist attraction in a few years Top of the final American climb Boston seemed nice Massachusetts state house First view of the Atlantic in a very long time! Getting ready for the final flight

many congratulations a truly great achievement …. I look forward to hearing more about it when you join us for that small trip in early September.
Looks like you captured the moment rather well, all seems very peaceful over in the States. I wonder if it’s beginning to seem like a long time ago yet or if it’s still fresh in your mind. Must be difficult to get your head around all these places you have passed through albeit in a sweeping sort of motion. Does the brain actually manage to process all that information or is it a bit of a blur. Most my vacations are a blur and that’s after only a week or two going to the same place more often than not!! I still can’t get my head around what you have just undertaken, not sure if you are brilliant or bonkers, possibly a bit of both.
Grohl returned, singing and playing guitar while an assistant held his leg in place. Grohl said he felt “lucky that I’ve got my band, so that when I break my f—ing leg they can still play music!
