This trip was exhausting, exhilarating, exciting, and downright terrifying. However, it was most definitely not expensive. If this is something you’re interested in doing – DO IT. As long as you have the time and a little bit of money, you can make it work.
Last year, I did a cross-country road trip to Death Valley in back, but it was like two separate trips with a big chunk of relaxing in California in the middle. This was very different and much faster-paced.
Here are some of my favorite moments:
Summiting Half Dome was a great feeling. It was exhausting and scary, but I felt accomplished. I had been kind of dreading how much time and effort it would take, but it really was worth it.
Finally getting to see the Pacific Northwest was super cool. I love the vibes and aesthetics, and it’s always so cool to see places that you hear about all the time.
I love Los Angeles! I’ve seen such a small part of it, but I already can’t wait to go back.
That time I went skydiving in Utah? So unbelievably cool.
The views from Whitney… I don’t want to do it again any time soon, but eventually, probably, right?
I guess this is pretty cool.
