Anyone here taken any cool road trips? Where have you gone? Where would you like to go? The furthest I've ever driven is from Chicago to Baltimore. I usually drive there with my dad every summer, but I'm not going this year. It's a very boring drive. My family drove from Las Vegas to Phoenix on a vacation about 10 years ago. We spent a day at the Grand Canyon and a few days in Sedona on the way. And a couple years ago we drove from Salt Lake City to Las Vegas, and spent several days at Zion National Park in southern Utah. Within the next couple years I'd like to spend an entire summer driving around the country. I'd start in mid June and head to the northeast and hike in upstate New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. I'd drive down I-95, passing through Boston, New York, and Philadelphia. I'd spend a few days in Baltimore visiting relatives before driving southwest to the Smoky Mountains. I'd hike there for a couple days, and then stop in Memphis to visit my friend. I really have no interest in seeing the southeastern states, so I'd head north and spend a day hiking and camping in southern Illinois. Then I'd drive out to Colorado, passing through St. Louis and Kansas City. I'd probably stay in Colorado for a couple weeks climbing mountains. I'd pass through New Mexico and hike in Flagstaff, Arizona for a day before continuing on into southern Cal. From there I'd drive up the Pacific Coast Highway to Monterey, and then head over to the Sierras and climb Mount Whitney, the highest point in the lower 48. I'd spend a few days in Yosemite, and a day in Tahoe, and then continue north through Oregon and Washington to Seattle. Maybe do a short backpacking trip in Olympic National Park. Then I'd finally start heading back east, driving through Idaho and Montana, checking out Yellowstone and the Tetons in Wyoming, a backpacking trip in the Wind River Range, and staying in Salt Lake City for a few days. I'd climb the highpoint of Utah, Kings Peak, and then start my journey home, spending a week in the Black Hills of South Dakota on the way. Mount Rushmore is there, as well as Wind Cave National Park, and Badlands National Park is nearby. From there it's a full day's drive back to Chicago. That's my dream. I think it would be a pretty epic journey.
