The second leg takes us over the Rockies into Calgary and south along a rocky path towards the Great Salt Lake. I’m estimating 30 days and about 1800 miles for this but I think that is too short. We only have 5 locations where we are staying multiple days (Calgary, Missoula, Yellowstone, Idaho Falls, and Salt Lake City) but with all the mountains we may not be able to pull loner distance days. Here are some of the highlights:
- Shuswap Lake Monster
- My brother, sister-in-law, and niece (yep, there is another generation of Neigers)
- Hot springs
- Blayne Bennett
- Yellowstone National Park
- Largest collection of vacuum devices
- Salt Lake
If you have recommendations for this approximate route I’d love to hear them… or if you want to host or know someone with a soft couch we are also always looking for new friends and family.
Jump in the Salt Lake! I did it as a kid and I’m not sure if it was a good idea or not. I think I did it just to say I could but man is that lake salty! Probably why it’s called the Salt Lake, right?
Enjoy your trip, sounds fun.
I’m going on a year long trip around the world soon and reading blogs like yours get me really excited for the trip to start!
Thanks so much for sharing your journey with us!
