Last June SpitFire and I took off on a marathon road trip to see most of the north west and western states. This was a drive a look trip with no real planned agenda other than a genera route and a few specific places to see. Each day we would be on the road about sunrise and go until about 3 hours before sunset (or when we were ready to stop) then would start calling a couple hours ahead to find a place to stay. We stopped and looked at whatever we wanted to see. Less than 5% of the entire trip was interstate highway.....stayed off the beaten path and took over 5,000 pics! Here are but a few!

The map....each circled number is a day and the circled orange "X" is where we stopped for the night.



The first couple days were wet so not as many pics....



Notice the size of the light posts....

Heck of a run. I've been down most of the routes you took, just not all at once. Looks like a good time.

There is some beautiful country up there, we did a similar trip, 4 weeks in 1977. Up through the plains states, into Canada to Banff and then back down through the Rockies into New Mexico and home. We tent camped and spent 6 nights in motels.

That's an awesome trip! I have two trips planned out that together might equal that one, but I'm not quite energetic enough to do them both at once.
