Lake Crescent- Olympic National Park- Washington
Last summer, Marissa and I went on an unbelievable adventure. A road trip starting and ending in Portland, OR that covered 2,500 miles and included 4 National Parks- Olympic, Glacier, Yellowstone, Grand Teton and cities like Seattle, Bozeman and Boise. I'd planned over 2 years in advance and literally counted the days starting from 676.
We had the best time together and didn't even fight over anything (except when the GPS broke and when we hated each others music selections.)
2 days after we got home (and it kills me to bring this up) my computer crashed and I lost all of our road trip pictures. I always backup my work, always, but we'd just gotten home and I hadn't gotten around to it yet. Long story short- they're gone- I cried in the Apple store- and that's that.
With this summer being Marissa's last real "summer break" we decided to go on another (smaller) trip. She'll be going into her 2nd year of Med School in the Fall and after that- no more summer for her.
New York- Philadelphia- Annapolis/DC- Shenandoah National Park-
Somewhere in West Virginia- New York
I really want to see Shenandoah National Park and West Virginia. WV is the closest state to me that I haven't been to yet and it's been eluding me for years. I have to cross it off my list, it's driving me insane.
We might have to come up with a more interesting route home. WV to NY is not exactly the most exciting drive. I wish Santa Fe, New Mexico was in the middle.
I can't wait to be on the road again with my sister. I hope we can make it happen! We have a ton of photos to retake (although, these will be taken on the opposite end of the country this time.)
