We completed Stage 1 of our National Park to Park Highway Tour and learned some valuable lessons. As the BIG trip looms, we are frantically preparing. I thought you’d like to know where we’ll go on our seven week, 5,600 mile road trip tour of the National Park to Park Highway.

Our journey begins June 27, 2016 with our first stop: Grand Teton National Park. I’m glad we’re starting here. After the difficulties of camping on our practice tour, I’m looking forward to staying at Togwotee Mountain Lodge. Their cabins are the perfect size for our family and I need to ease back into full time camping with a shower, flush toilet and laundry services. Apparently camping luxury to me means running water.
