I recently drove from Southeast Ohio to Portland, Oregon, where I’m working this summer.
The trip was beautiful. Josh Jamerson and I drove several hours each day (with the exception of a two-night stay in Ogden, Utah while visiting Brandon Carte) and made it across the country in six days.
Here are some highlights of the trip.
This was our first stop outside Ohio.

The drive through rural Wyoming was particularly pretty.
Brandon and Josh walk along a trail leading to a waterfall in Ogden, Utah.
We ran into a bit of hail and rain on our hike in Ogden. It was at about this point when we decided to turn around.

Josh and I hiked Cascade Falls Trail in South Lake Tahoe, California.

Josh and I got up at about 6:30 a.m. to hike.
This is the only photo we took together on my camera.
Josh and I hiked a 5-mile trail alongside the Pacific Ocean on our first full day in Oregon.
People were commenting online that the trail we were hiking wasn’t safe for young children. The drop-off is steep.
