Our Road Trip West – The Park Tour

Enjoying the outdoors is one of the things we really enjoy doing on our vacations.  To incorporate that part into our trip we wanted to visit multiple historic sites and National Parks.  In visiting the ones that we did, I was impressed by how different the landscape is from the Midwest through the Great Plains […]

Our Road Trip West – The Restaurant Tour

Our Road Trip West

As I alluded to in an earlier post, this year we took a road trip out west.  After contemplating what kind of vacation we wanted to do this year, we determined that we have never really taken a road trip together nor have we really spent much time discovering other US states.  We decided that we […]
