My husband and I, along with our dog Tela, have taken several road trips through scenic places all over the United States and down into Mexico. We’ve seen amazing wildlife, stunning sunsets and sunrises, and breathtaking natural wonders, but I can only imagine the incredible sites awaiting us when we someday make it to Alaska, the Last Frontier. Until then, I can only reminisce about past trips. Below are my two favorite road trips taken (so far):

Trip 1

  • Starting point: Aspen, Colorado
  • Jackson Hole, Wyoming (Dramatic views of the Grand Teton Mountain Range, and a must-stop at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar)
  • Yellowstone National Park (America’s first national park! Geysers, waterfalls, bears, oh my!)
  • Black Hills National Forest, South Dakota (Drive through the spectacular Needles Highway with hairpin curves, towering granite formations and pine covered mountains)
  • Badlands, South Dakota (Camp amongst the most unique geologic deposits and landscape I have ever seen. It’s like being on the moon!)
  • Bayfield, Wisconsin, and Madeline Island, on beautiful Lake Superior (A true gem of the Midwest. Visit Bayfield in early October during Apple Festival, then catch the ferry over to Madeline Island to take in the spectacular fall colors)
  • Back home to Aspen

Trip 2

  • Starting point: Aspen, Colorado
  • Zion National Park, Utah (Utah’s first national park! Camp and hike amidst massive canyon walls, towering cliffs, and narrow canyons. Don’t forget your camera!)
  • San Diego, California (Visit Blacks Beach in La Jolla, one of the most secluded beaches in San Diego)
  • Coronado Island, California (Explore the charming shops, restaurants, and beaches on this little island, and enjoy fresh seafood in the harbor with views looking at lit-up San Diego at night)
  • Manhattan Beach, California (Rent a beach cruiser and cruise up and down the boardwalk)
  • Back home to Aspen

Get out on the road and have some fun!
