Couldn't help but notice that it seems nobody has actually been adventuring lately. Maybe they have but not posting about it. When I go, I go big. Just over 5,000 miles in 17 days this time. There was no prescribed route. Just heading out to some favorite spots and exploring some areas that I've never seen. The trip went something like this: Inland Empire to Baker, forgotten passport, back to Inland Empire and eventually, Grand Canyon NP Capitol Reef NP Natural Bridges SP Valley of the Gods Monument Valley Mesa Verde NP Canyonlands NP Arches NP Glacier NP (US) Difficult Border Crossing Waterton NP Banff NP Jasper NP Yoho NP Mt. Revelstoke NP Glacier NP (CA) North Cascades NP Olympic NP Mt Rainier NP Crater Lake NP Lassen Volcanic NP Lake Tahoe Bodie SP Death Valley NP Inland Empire and other highlights that I will remember later Whew! :eek1 Sore ass. A little hiking, hot springing, kayaking, swimming, drinking, cooking, camping and a few deluxe accommodations along the way. It didn't start out to be a mission to see at least one national park per day but after a while decided why the hell not? There are a few nice photos I'll try to post later.
