Location Details: First stop was Painted Hills National Monument in Oregon. We spent the night at a campground north of the monument called Priest Hole, right along the John Day River. Then we drove to southern Utah to see Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park. We spent two nights at the Castle Rock basecamp outside of Moab and one night at a private campground just outside of Canyonlands.
I've been away for a while, driving around the southwest and living out of my car with my cousin Hallie O'Brien. The trip was around four thousand miles, through 7 states and 4 national parks. I'll attempt to share some of the awesome rock formations and deep canyons we saw in pictures, but for now, here is the roadtrip in a nutshell.
