Across the Country

I took a break from blogging through the majority of the summer, mostly because I have been so busy.  After all, some of my summer was spent moving across the country.  In this post, I’ll share some photos from that trip.  Maybe I’ll share some stories later.

In August a friend accompanied me as I moved from Philadelphia to San Francisco.  We stopped along the way in Wheeling, West Virginia; Glen Ellyn, Illinois; Green Lake, Wisconsin; Columbia, Missouri; Englewood, Colorado; Canyonlands, Utah; Unita-Wasatch National Forest, Utah; and Lake Tahoe, California, before finally arriving in San Francisco.  We traveled this zig-zag route in order to attend a wedding, and to be hosted (for free!) by friends and friends-of-friends along the way.  In a later post, I will tell you about the blessing of the hospitality we received along the journey.  Until then, enjoy these photos.

If you ever get the chance, do it!  Drive cross-country.  If you’re into camping, be sure to plot some great spots along the way.  Utah was my favorite camping spot.  Also, be open to crashing on couches of friends-of-friends who you haven’t met (which were some of my favorite stays).  And, do stop for a few roadside attractions, farmer’s markets and local breweries.  Your trip will only be enhanced because of it!

Happy trails!
