(Can someone please pin this for a few days to get some good replys)
Next year is our 30th wedding anniversary and WofZ and I are hitting the road in June. She wants to visit a childhood penpal in Colorado, so we are looking at Washington, Idaho, Montana, South Dakota, Colorado, then heading back west through Utah, maybe Arizona, Nevada California then up the Pacific coast to home.
We are taking our camping gear, canoe and equip, hiking gear and our road bikes. Camp a few days, a couple hotel nights, back camping...., that sort of thing. We love day hikes, and paddling and doing some exploring on our bikes. We are not opposed to wilderness canoe camping as well.
All we know for sure is we are hitting the Badlands and Yellowstone. If you know of any local knowledge "must-dos" let me know. We much prefer a local hiking trail with amazing views to going to see the worlds largest ball of string. Our actual route is early in the research phase so nothing is off the table.
Any suggestions would be greatly appe..., apresh....... appreschia......., I woukd like it a lot.
