My wife and I took our two younger kids on a trip out west last June. We mostly camped a KOA campgrounds, we left central Indiana and stopped for the first night just outside of Kansas City. The next day we headed to Limon Colorado, Kansas is a long and boring drive. We camped in Limon for three nights, the first full day we went to Colorado Springs and the garden of the gods and Pikes peak. The second day we visited Denver, next morning we drove north thru Denver and the Rockies, that was some beautiful scenery. We ended that day in Green River Utah where we stayed for another three nights. The first day we went to Moab where we rented a Jeep and hit some trails, the second day we spent at Arches National Park, on a side note, my son had just finished up his fourth grade school year and in the US all fourth graders are entitled to a free national park pass, this was very convenient. The next day we headed to Hurricane Utah where we spent the afternoon hiking the narrows at Zion National Park. We just stayed there the one night, the next day we headed to Nevada and made a couple passes through the Vegas strip and then headed to the Hoover Dam, and finished of that day of driving in Williams Arizona, where we stayed for another three nights. We spent two days at the Grand Canyon. After that we headed to Albuquerque with stops in Winslow AZ so I could get my picture taken standing on the corner, my wife thought I was ridiculous until we got there and she saw all of the other people doing the same thing. We also stopped at the petrified Forrest. We stayed one night in Albuquerque and it was our last night camping, there weren’t any KOAs that were convenient for the trip home. We stayed a night in Amarillo, and stopped at the Cadillac ranch on the way. The next day we headed to Tulsa with a stop in Shamrock Texas where the gas station in the movie Cars is modeled after, it’s a really neat old building with Tesla charging stations around back. We stayed the night in Tulsa and the next morning we went and checked out the Center of the Universe and then the Blue Whale of Catoosa, we ended that day in Sikeston MO with a dinner at Lambert’s cafe. The next morning we headed home. About 4000 miles in sixteen days, all while living out of my wife’s 2004 Honda Pilot. It was a great adventure, hoping the get two weeks vacation during the summer again in the next few years and head north west.
