Pacific Northwest: Washington

The last time Matt and I were in Washington was 2016 and when we tried to leave, the aviation world went into complete chaos. We were on a red-eye about to take off when the pilot had to taxi the plane back to the gate at 1 am because the computers shut down. This wouldContinue reading “Pacific Northwest: Washington”

Idaho – Potatoes and More!

Idaho feels like a cousin of the Midwestern states who lives 1800 miles away. Like it shares the same facial features, but maybe has a different hair color and body build. Driving across the state, I concluded it has a Midwest vibe, but diverse landscapes. There are many similarities like rural small towns, farmland, andContinue reading “Idaho – Potatoes and More!”

Grand Teton National Park

I know I’m from the flat lands of the Midwest, but I’ve seen mountains before. Matt and I always tried to vacation somewhere that has mountains. We love them. We even got engaged on a mountain in Colorado! So, I guess what I’m saying is that I know what a mountain looks like. However, IContinue reading “Grand Teton National Park”

Yellowstone National Park

This stay was a lot of firsts for us which is fitting since Yellowstone was the first established national park in the US in 1872. It was the first time we hosted guests in our RV which then led to other firsts like using our cooler (to hold more beer, duh), building a campfire (longContinue reading “Yellowstone National Park”

Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park (GNP) is to be feared and respected like your Latin teacher who was terrifyingly strict, but ended up being one of your favorite teachers. One should not take the park lightly. A man hiking in GNP went missing this July and still hasn’t been found despite extensive searches. Steep heights, bear attacks,Continue reading “Glacier National Park”

The North Dakota Badlands

Over Labor Day weekend, we camped in Theodore Roosevelt National Park. We drove in from the East after leaving Minneapolis. Initially, it was all hills and grassland. Then, suddenly we hit the Badlands and I was totally blown away. The difference was striking. It was likely the strong coffee contributing, but I felt such giddinessContinue reading “The North Dakota Badlands”

Pure Michigan

Those Michigan advertisements were not exaggerating when they said Michigan was pure!! Every view is stunning. A true hidden gem in the Midwest. I cannot believe these amazing sights are in Indiana’s (my home state) backyard! We first stayed in Grand Rapids and visited Matt’s old buddies. Then, headed along the west coast of MichiganContinue reading “Pure Michigan”
