Family Road Trip Stories

Dear Friends,

Remember when we followed the Snake River upstream from its mouth at the Columbia River in Washington State to its source in Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming?

Or the marvelous trek we took over the Rocky Mountains via the San Juan Skyway in Colorado, and then the white knuckle ride down the Million Dollar Highway?

What about the incredible waterfalls we saw when hiking in the spectacular Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area in Oregon?

Then, there are the stellar road trips, the places where I left a piece of my heart and I yearn to return to . . . the Oregon coast, Yosemite National Park, the Molalla River Corridor & Table Rock Wilderness and one of my most loved places on Earth, The Clackamas River Recreation Area.

Wonderful memories, all of them . . . so unforgettable!

Now, it is Your Turn to Tell Great Road Trip Stories!

I would love to hear about your entertaining road trip stories, memorable ventures, interesting happenings, what you saw and did, travel tips, destinations ideas . . . anything and everything “road trip” you would like to share.

If you love experiencing new and favorite places as much as I do, please share your road trip stories with me! I would love to add your destination ideas to my “must-see” and “gotta-do” lists, and I know visitors to this website will enjoy your stories, too!

Not only can you share your stories, I would love to feature your travel journals and poetry, too.

If you know someone who has great road trip stories to share, tell them about and invite them to submit their story for publication.

I can’t wait to hear from you!
