There are not enogh stars for me to rate my cross country road trip experience high enough. 1,000 stars!! A friend and started in New Jersey and made the following stops/experiences: Bloomington, IN, Chicago, IL (where I met my now husband!), Sioux Falls, SD, Rapid City, SD/Black Hills/Deadwood/Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone National Park/Old Faithful, WY, Cle Elum, WA, Seattle, WA, Portland/Silverton, OR, Leggett, CA, San Francisco, CA, Los Angeles, CA, Grand Canyon National Park, AZ, Tucumcari, NM/Route 66, and Dallas, TX. Our road trip came to an early end due to a family emergency but even making it that far is an experience I will NEVER forget!
