It started with Mount St. Helen’s. After we got a new truck, we went to Dick’s Drive-in and then Riley and I went to Mount St. Helen’s.
Then we went to all of these places:
OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK
En route through Wyoming
ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK
CHACO CULTURAL NATIONAL HISTORIC PARK
CANYON DE CHELLY NATIONAL MONUMENT
HUBBLE TRADING POST
PAINTED DESERT / PETRIFIED FOREST NATIONAL PARK
DEATH VALLEY NATIONAL PARK
YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK
And finally home.
4468 miles, 9 National Parks and monuments, 10 states. My favourites were Yellowstone, Hubble Trading Post (how I wish I could afford some Navajo weaving!) and Canyon de Chelly, Matt’s were Chaco Culture NHP and the Petrified Forest.

And the Xterra held up exceptionally well. In fact, we christened it Wade Davis, after my favourite explorer.
