Exploring the Country

The pandemic has hit overseas travel hard. Most people are now choosing to explore the United States rather than travel abroad, both because it’s risky and in many cases, just not possible.

In October 2020, my husband, our two dogs, and myself decided to go on an old fashioned road trip to the Natchez Trace Parkway, Alabama, Nashville, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. We enjoyed the culture and people in the South so much we went on another road trip to the Deep South in February 2021.

In the fall of 2021, we went on two more road trips: Trip 1) Utah/Las Vegas and Trip 2) Nevada/Las Vegas. Below was our itineraries.
