Young Bear in Grand Teton National Park

Western USA Road Trip: Grand Teton National Park

On our hike up to Amphitheater Lake we saw a black bear from up close, but luckily it was more interested in eating berries than humans.

Hidden Lake, North Cascades National Park

Western USA Road Trip: North Cascades National Park

This was the last of 3 National Parks we visited in Washington. After spending a lot of time trying to find a campsite during Labor Day, we hiked up to beautiful Hidden Lake. This was the first serious day hikes we did during our road trip.

Views from Pinnacle Peak, Mount Rainier National Park

Western USA Road Trip: Mount Rainier National Park

Our road trip continues on in the Pacific Northwest with the national park named after this famous mountain. We stayed in a great campground, and enjoyed views of Mount Rainier from every angle.

Western USA Road Trip: Olympic National Park

A fast paced 3-day visit to this huge National Park with a wide variety of landscapes. We saw rain forests, waterfalls, rivers, lakes, wild beaches, and mountains.

Western USA Road Trip: Crater Lake National Park

A disappointing visit to this National Park, which on that day was covered with smoke from a wildfire, blocking the view of its beautiful lake.
