America is amazing y'all. I'm still sorting through about 1000 photos to prove it. It seemed like every day of our trip we would see some amazing sites, to only be topped the very next day by something even more incredible. From Virginia to Ohio to Memphis to Oklahoma to Route 66 to Santa Fe to Mesa Verde to Moab (probably my fave) to Monument Valley (UT), the Grand Canyon (indescribable) and up through Death Valley (major WOW) to Tahoe. I could maybe write a book on our crazy adventure, but instead, I just wanted to post a few of my favorite photos. More posts to come on traveling on long trips with a baby and must-see spots across this great country and maybe even "Things NOT to do when traveling with a baby across the USA for 3 weeks!"
Traveling cross-country was so refreshing. It was a true reminder that we really are so small. There is SO much to see. The options are endless and life is short. If I had known how incredible the sites would be, I would have just traveled in the US the last few years. I am so proud of us for making this long journey and luckily we're still married at the end of it.
