A classic western road trip.

Drop the Hammer.

In 2021, we crammed as much of the American west as we could possibly see into 9 days. Starting in Denver, our road trip took us throughout western Colorado, around Utah, and dipped into Arizona. 7 national parks, (and at least 3 state parks) 4 cities, ~2,000 miles driven and many hiked, one engagement (!) and countless stops to the side of the road.

Now I understand why everyone talks about this kind of road trip.
