Homeward Bound!

We get on the road again tomorrow and will be taking on another 3200 miles in our Jeep.
We're going to be pretty excited to get home when we finally arrive there after this crazy, road-tripping summer.

Redwood & North Cascades National Parks

We've been in Spokane for nearly two weeks now and I am just starting to feel like a human again.  Our time on the road has been incredibly fun, but incredibly tiring too!

On our journey to Spokane, we had the opportunity to check off a few more national parks.

In California, we spent two night camping at Redwood National Park -- what a beautiful place!  The contrasts between the old growth forests and the rugged coastline all in one place was awesome!

Smith River at Jedediah Smith State Park in the Redwoods - such an amazing color!

At North Cascades National Park we didn't get to stay there, but got to do a beautiful hike at Ross Lake.  Gorgeous!

Of course, our road trips always include seeing a few friends in-between!

Jamie is the first person from our Peace Corps Tonga group to be pregnant! Go Jamie!

And, a very sweet/fun co-worker from my unum/cigna days in Los Angeles, who now lives in beautiful Anacortes, WA!
