For the past three summers at this time of July I was preparing for a road trip:
– 2010: Great American Road Trip to Colorado, Grand Canyon, California, Utah
– 2011: Niagara Falls & Gettysburg
– 2012: Great American Road Trip II to the Badlands, Mt Rushmore, Yellowstone (ahhhh Yellowstone), Glacier National Park and more
– 2013: nowhere
To be fair, we took a wonderful road trip to Washington D.C. over spring break. And I’ve got a few day trips planned in the first half of August. Those will be fun but I’m jonesing to load up the car and plan a route and hit the road.
It’s the end of July and I’ve got a hankering to drive miles & miles, eat road trip snacks and discover new national parks.
