Daniel and I got back from our 30 day road trip the first week of October and I am finally getting around to blogging about the rest of our travels. I already feel like our road trip is a distant memory, why can't time slow down?
We left Oregon and headed up to Seattle, Washington. About two hours into our drive I knew Seattle was going to be jaw dropping beautiful, I was not let down. All of the surrounding scenery was so luscious and vivid. I figured with all the consistent rain came beauty. When we got to Seattle we stayed at an awesome airbnb.com house. Daniel couldn't of picked a better home for us to stay in while we visited. The home was located by a 130 acre park, Lincoln Park to be exact. We walked there a few times, it is right off the Puget Sound. I unfortunately didn't capture any photos at Lincoln Park, but please Google it or go there. That park alone sold me on living in Seattle. When it wasn't raining, Seattle truly is a gem. If you like the rain, then its the ultimate place to live. If we didn't fall in love with Boulder, CO we would of moved to Seattle. Seattle has tasty food, nice people, the views sold us...but we knew we would miss the constant sunshine we were so used to in Arizona.
We didn't take our camera out much because we wanted to enjoy our stay and soak it all up. The only time we captured the beauty of Seattle was at the coolest dog parks ever, acres of land and parts of the Puget Sound made strictly for dogs. Lastly, we had to check out Pike Place Market before we left Seattle. Pike's Place Market has it's famous gum wall, the original Starbucks, fish market and fresh flowers, tons of food and great people watching!
It is Montana time. Wow-we-wow this place is stunning, especially in the beginning stages of fall. We went to Glacier National Park, but we didn't get to see as much of it as we wanted. The place we were supposed to camp at was closed and much of the roads were closed for repair. We improvised and camped right outside Glacier Park and boy was it beautiful. The lakes were crystal clear and everywhere you looked you saw massive mountains.
We stayed outside of Glacier National Park for one night and headed on to another campsite outside of Bozeman, Montana. Bozeman is the second largest city in Montana and it felt like it would be a nice place to live. The campsite we stayed at rained us out after the first night It was such a crazy rainy night and Daniel thought a bear was attacking out tent (in which he sounded our blow horn at 2:00am...it ended up just being rain lol). That morning, while the rain continued, Stella got a fish hook in here ear which Daniel eventually yanked out. Thankfully we had a first aid kit and the fish hook wasn't barbed. We had enough of the rain and we wanted to get clean and be warm! We checked ourselves into a hotel and we couldn't have been happier. It was a dinky hotel, but we got to shower!! We got to stay warm <3 The joy of having a roof over your head when you are used to camping for so long.
