10 weeks, 13,000 miles, 17 states and 7 national parks later I am back in Winters!!
|My route around the states|
What an incredible journey! Thank you to all who hosted me along the way and regrets to those I missed. I had a blast making new friends, reconnecting with so many old friends, and getting to know my family better.
There is still so much more I would like to see in the US, but that will have to wait.
