The grand trip

Here's a list of all the posts from the cross-country trip my friend and I took this summer. We drove 10,157 miles, from Everett, Washington, to Laurel, Maryland, and back. The east-bound leg was across the top (Washington, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland); the west-bound more along the middle (Maryland, DC, North Carolina, Tennessee, Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Washington). We didn't exactly retrace the ends, as we took US 2 across the mountains going east and I-90 going west.

I did five posts on birds and beasts, to cut down the number of photos in some of the day posts, but they're all pretty image intensive. I also pulled out the Little Bighorn Battlefield for its own post (we went there on Day 3), and Fort Kearny (Day 15).

(I've now visited (or at least been in) 45 states. All I need to visit are Hawai'i, Vermont, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, and Maine!)



At 8:24 AM, August 02, 2012 Anonymous Adrian Morgan had this to say...

So much easier for us Australians to say we've visited every state. You have to work hard for that badge! :-)

(BTW, do let me know if you ever find yourself on my part of the planet. I would be honoured to introduce you to our local birds, among other things.)
