People keep asking me "What was your favorite part of your journey?" I can't pinpoint a single experience as my ultimate favorite, but I can identify a few of my favorite things.
When I embarked on my journey, I wondered if I'd come back to this place, but coming home to Portland feels right to me, at least for now.
At risk of sounding like a true travel blogger, I'm going to skim through the high points of our last 27 hours in Victoria because they were nothing short of delightful.
I was super excited to visit Banff National Park, but the time I spent there was almost all together disappointing.
Today I braved my first "solo" hike in grizzly country and visited the little town of Libby, Montana to celebrate Gma's moon...
I was eagerly apprehensive to head to Montana...
I wish I could have plucked all the tourists out of Jackson and just observed the locals...but they were easy to tell apart!
A couple girlfriends came to visit me for the Perseid Meteor Shower. We didn't see much of it, but we saw Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons National Parks.
Getting stuff done en route to Wyoming for dark skies and a weekend of star-gazing, Yellowstoning, and Teton Mountain-ing with girlfriends!
I followed my heart in coming to Colorado early...and knew I'd made the right decision as I moved east, the temperatures cooled, and the scenery turned from rocks and scrub brush to mountains and pines.
