Road Trip Day 11- Badlands National Park

This was another early morning, which meant we got to see another sunrise from the car. Unfortunately, I never took a picture but these sunrises were pretty epic. As this was our longest drive of the trip, we only had one stop planned the entire day. Badlands National Park. An hour outside of Rapid City,… Continue reading Road Trip Day 11- Badlands National Park

Road Trip Day 10: National Monuments- Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota

Day ten was what I like to call our National Monuments day. We had a long drive from Livingston, Montana to Rapid City, South Dakota, interspersed with stops at four National Monuments in Montana, Wyoming, and South Dakota. It was a long day of driving but I'm glad that we broke it up with these… Continue reading Road Trip Day 10: National Monuments- Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota

This is the road we would be spending the rest of our trip on, aside… Continue reading Road Trip Days 7 and 8: Driving in Washington and Montana and the National Bison Range

We had intended on stopping at Crater Lake National Park, northeast of Medford, before continuing our drive but with a large part of the road closed surrounding the… Continue reading Road Trip Days 5 and 6: Portland and Seattle

Road Trip Day 4- Lassen Volcanic National Park

This park was such a great find! Just as a disclaimer, these photos do not do this park justice. When we left Lake Tahoe, we drove around the eastern side of the lake and into Nevada, heading towards Reno. With a quick stop in a casino, which was like Vegas but smokier and a little… Continue reading Road Trip Day 4- Lassen Volcanic National Park
