Bill and Julie’s trip to Alaska and many other scenic spots along the way

June 09, 2019  •  1 Comment

After completing the long list of checks and repairs to our little RV, we finally departed Philadelphia, June 1.

While driving across Pennsylvania, we decided the best approach to our adventure would be to head southwest first, through New Mexico, Arizona and on to Los Angeles then up the coast to Alaska with a northern route home through Montana.

Of course,  I will get to hit all my favorite photo spots, Bill gets to go to as many professional baseball games as possible.

Stop One - Brazil Indiana, where the locals proudly boast having more covered bridges than any other state in the US.

Stop Two - St Lois and to see Cincinnati play the Cardinals at Busch Stadium.

Stop Three - Monument Rocks in the middle of what seemed like nowhere Kansas, a small outcrop of white clay rocks standing like sentinel’s in the middle of the countries bread basket. It took a lot of driving down dirt roads to find them outside of Sorey, Kansas.

Stop Four – The Great Sand Dunes National Park in south-central Colorado, the tallest Sand Dunes in the U.S. They are located on the east edge of the San Luis Valley in the Sangre de Cristo mountain range. The dunes stand around 750 feet tall and cover about 30 square miles.

 At around midday, we departed the Dunes. The parking lots were all jammed: cars filled every available space along the sides of the road and a line of cars extended for around 3 miles waiting to enter the Great Dunes, National Park.

Will Post the Next Stop Soon
