I just read some great road trip inspiration from Lonely Planet about the less-romanticized North-South U.S. Highways. We’ve experienced a few of the ones they mention. Last spring our trip took us on a good section of Highway 89 (Nicknamed the National Park Highway) in Utah and Arizona and Nick and I have traveled Parts of U.S. 1 in Maine and U.S. 101 in California and Washington. I grew up near U.S. 61 in Iowa and U.S. 41 is Lake Shore Drive through our current city of Chicago. This list includes a nice geographic variety of American highways. Perhaps the most intriguing is U.S. 83 out there smack in the middle of nowhere. Road trip anyone? Check Out the complete list:

We rode the father/daughter team of Stroker (Nick) and Mystique (Neil).10.09.21 : Took a walk around the earthworks at Hopewell Culture National Historical Park on the way to our camping weekend in Ohio’s Hocking Hills. These geometric ceremonial mounds were built by native cultures that lived in the area from about 200 BCE through 500 CE. The park is made up of six separate sites located around Chillicothe, Ohio.07.29.21 : The final big hike of our summer trip was Pennsylvania Mountain near Fairplay, Colorado. It’s not a well-known peak, but it’s a 13er and provides great views of the continental divide and surrounding mountain ranges in a quick (but steep) 5 mile round trip.07.21.21 : At 9 miles, our hike down the Grand Canyon’s North Kaibab Trail was our longest and by far the most strenuous hike of the summer. We went as far as Roaring Springs, 4.5 miles and 3,200 feet below the rim.
