Hello from Denver Colorado!
We arrived here last night rather late. It's been quite an adventure since the last update from Vegas! Since then we've visited Yosemite, Zion National Park, San Francisco, the Sierra National Forest, the Redwood National Forest, Crescent City California, Spoken Washington, Glacier National Park, Yellow Stone National Park, Teton National Forest, and are now currently in Denver Colorado. So far, we have definitely gone over our budget, but it's hard not to experience cities when in them. Being a budget traveler through New Orleans or Las Vegas didn't seem very reasonable. By that I mean, not going to shows, and otherwise really drinking in what the city has to offer. San Francisco was surprisingly affordable. We did Pier 39 where I ruined one of my shirts by placing my arm on the railing of the pier to get a photo, turns out there was a bunch of bird shit there that I didn't see. Then we camped for a few days in the Forests, which were mind blowing. While hiking through the Redwoods, I wound up injuring my knee. We had to take two days at "cheap motels" for me to recover. Essentially, we hiked too much with too much weight without proper hiking equipment... So... Injury ensued. From there we continued to the National Parks, Glacier and Yellowstone. While we were there, we saw so much wildlife and amazing views. We wound up finding quite a few really good campsites all throughout this leg of the journey. These produced amazing pictures and I can't wait to show you all. While up there, Kylie actually wound up getting a tidbit of altitude sickness. And after that we headed to Denver...
We're a bit crunched on time so, sorry if this update is quite short. But we were planning on staying in the Rocky Mountain National Park for the next two days. But the weather forecast is predicting it will rain for the next week, pretty much non-stop while we were planning to be there. So currently, we are sitting in my friend's dining room, looking at maps, destinations, and more. That's sure been one constant on the trip... Planning where and what we'll be doing right before we do it. It's been fun, it's been a literal adventure, and it's been amazing. I'll likely get a better chance to update a good bit more once we get back to Atlanta. We've been on the road now for about three weeks, maybe three and a half. Our adventure is almost over, and once it is we have a good bit of time to relax and recuperate! This whole trip, I've been brainstorming how to categorize and present our entire trip. So keep an eye out for that! Lots of words, pictures, topics, so much to cover... I'm really excited for it, and I hope you are too :)
