Hello again! I’m finally catching up on the rest of our summer adventures! Back at the beginning of August, my brother and his fiance came to visit, and we had an awesome weekend exploring Seattle, camping in the mountains, and trying to convince them to move here. 🙂 Friday morning we headed up to Diablo Lake, in North Cascades National… View Post
Day 14! The final day of our road trip! We had such an amazing journey across the U.S. but were definitely excited to get home and not be living out of a car. We left Kalispell and headed through Idaho and Washington.
Our big hike along the Highline Trail and through Swiftcurrent Pass really took it out of us, so we had a pretty low-key day 13 of our road trip planned. We’d splurged again on a pretty nice hotel room in Kalispell, so our plan was to take our time driving back along Going-to-the-Sun Road and enjoying the views of Glacier National… View Post
We had very big plans for day 12 of our road trip: a 15.5 mile hike from Logan Pass along the Highline Trail to Granite Park Chalet, then down through Swiftcurrent Pass to Many Glacier.

Our first hike in Glacier National Park was to Iceberg Lake. We loved the drive through the park on Going-to-the-Sun Road the night before, so today we were looking forward to exploring another part of the park, Many Glacier.
We had another busy day planned for day 10 of our cross-country road trip. Our goal was to reach St. Mary Campground in Glacier National Park, but first up was a tour of Lewis and Clark Caverns.
Our plan for our second day in Yellowstone was to see the famous Old Faithful, then cover the western half of the park on our way up to Montana. We’d spent the night in West Yellowstone, so our first stop on the way was at Grand Prismatic Spring.
It’s a short drive from Grand Teton National Park to the south entrance of Yellowstone National Park. We’d planned to spend two days here, and our goal for today was to see the east side of the park.
A few months ago J signed us up for a Cairn box subscription, and we love it! Each month Cairn sends you 4-5 new products, featuring outdoor gear and food/snacks. It’s been a great way for us to discover new items to take with us on our outdoor adventures.
We were glad to have taken a day to rest up, and on day 7 of our road trip, we set off for another beautiful hike in Grand Teton National Park, this time to Surprise and Amphitheater Lakes.
