My wife and I are headed West on a rather ambitious trek. Our main focus is on some of the western U.S. national parks and coastline. Our interest was piqued, in part, by Ken Burns' The National Parks: America's Best Idea, the 2009 documentary.
Of course, the excitement of the budding frontier lured many colonists to the western reaches of North America. Today that same magnetism exists for travelers to appreciate some amazing vistas and experiences. I will be posting sporadically with limited time online. Comment moderation continues and days may go by before I have a chance to publish your valued comments.
Our itinerary will remain a bit of a mystery, and I'll reveal our experiences as we go.
Our mode of transportation, by the way, will not be by covered wagon but this.
'Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.' ~ John Muir
