St. Louis to Pacific Northwest And Back Again

Thank you for sharing!

 

Morning in Washington State.

Our family road trip this year was quite the adventure.  From St. Louis, Missouri to the Pacific Northwest – Olympic Forest in the beautiful state of Washington.  We traveled through 8 states and more miles than I care to count, but it was an incredible trip.

Today I’d like to share a few of the beautiful photos from our trip.  Many of these awesome shots were taken by my daughter. I’ll just give a brief description of each one.  Enjoy the scenery.

Beautiful painted bluffs, canyons, buttes, and hills pave the way west through Wyoming towards the Rocky Mountains.

      Thanks Sam. Ha, I feel the same about Australia! I guess it's pretty common though, the desire to go somewhere you have never been and see things with your own eyes! Thanks so much for the visit and the shares 🙂
