33 Days and 8942 miles later: The End

It has been 33 days and we have traveled 8,942 miles through 17 states, 11 National Parks and 6 Cities and we are now back home in Cincinnati!

States: Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Kansas, and Missouri.

National Parks: Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, Badlands, Grand Tetons, Waterton-Glacier, Wind Cave, Yellowstone, Crater Lake and Olympic.

Cities: Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Denver.

This trip was truly a trip of a lifetime and through traveling out West I have learned a lot and am happy to report that the only major incident was a speeding ticket in Utah (J).

Driving cross country and having the opportunity to see everything that I have has taught me that there is so much more to America than what meets the eye. Every time I got bored or tired of the landscape some new rock formation or mountain would pop-up and I would again be in awe.

The landscape of America is so diverse and so interesting that until you really stand looking up or down into a canyon that you can see and understand how amazing the Earth really is and how it is always changing.

THANK YOU so much for joining us on our trip and I hope that you have enjoyed reading the blog as much as I have updating it!

Stayed Tuned because there are always more adventures to be had!!!

Congratulations, Pam & J!! What an amazing opportunity...thanks for the updates and the pictures. I'm so glad we were able to be a part of the adventure in Las Vegas. Now, onto the European Vacation...hopefully it won't be too much like the National Lampoons...or maybe that would be preferable! Love ya!

Pam and J,

Despite the speeding ticket, I am glad you got to experience this adventure. I'm glad we were able to live vicariously through you and spend time with you in Vegas. I'm looking forward to the European vacation to again live vicariously through you and hopefully join you at some point.
