Deciding to stay at Crater Lake for the night and sleep was an excellent choice! Haha. We headed out bright and early on our exciting adventure home. We saw a lot of smoke from forest fires :(, a lot of trees, and after a while, a lot of sage brush. Hahaha. After a long time, we finally made it home, alive and in one piece! Amazing.
All told, we drove just over 4500 miles and just over 101 hours. We visited 13 national parks in both the US and Canada in 14 days, visited 2 countries, 2 provinces, 7 states, and 2 time zones. We took thousands of photos, lot of video, and listened to a LOT of Sirius XM (it worked in Canada!). It was a crazy whirlwind of a trip, and while there are certainly things I’d do differently given the chance, I’m so grateful for the opportunity to have experienced so many amazing places and things, and I’m super grateful to everyone who made it possible! It was so rewarding to have all of the time and energy I spent planning the trip to pay off so well.
