Miles driven: 616.7 (last 3 days) Miles hiked: 9.2 The last few days have been tiring. First, Szilvia decided to split off and go separate ways.

Miles driven: 226.5 Miles hiked: ~10.2 Today I almost fought a bear. Ok, not really, but I did finally get to see one. And not only did I get to see a bear, but I almost ran directly into his big, fat butt. So I guess I should start by saying we drove over to … Continue reading Lassen Volcanic National Park, California

Miles driven: 427.8 (+224.3 yesterday) Miles hiked: ~3 Today was a lot of driving. About eight hours worth, maybe more.

We had a quick drive over to the town of Layton after getting directions to the trailhead, which is located in the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest. The hike started off pretty sandy and gradually progressed more into rock … Continue reading Hiking, Art, and Music

Yellowstone National Park (Part 2)

July 10, 2015 Categories Camper Van, Road Trips, Travel, USA

We started this morning with a walk around Gardiner, Montana, where we camped out last night. It’s a pretty small town just outside the North entrance to Yellowstone. There were a bunch of interesting shops, mostly catered to rafting and fly fishing, since the town is right on the river. It was after 11am by … Continue reading Yellowstone National Park (Part 2)

Porcupine Mountains State Park, Michigan

Our camp out at the random casino last night worked out great and we were undisturbed the entire night. It was a very comfortable sleep, though it did get a little chilly at some point during the night. We hit the road around 10am and headed for the Porcupine Mountains State Park, right off the … Continue reading Porcupine Mountains State Park, Michigan

Ottawa National Forest, Michigan

We’re currently in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula checking out the Ottawa National Forest and a couple state parks. We were gonna do Isle Royale National Park, but it turns out the ferry ride to the island is like $120 per person, plus $4 per day to be on the island. I have no intentions of spending … Continue reading Ottawa National Forest, Michigan
