Amazing scenery.

We raised $795 on this trip. I flew my Autism Awareness flag all the way to Alaska and back down to Washington State. The pole I had the flag on got bent so I had to pack the flag away for the remainder of the trip. It survived the 7,300 California trip last year and about 6,000 miles on this trip.

The picture is of Lake Louise in Banff National Park, Canada. We covered 8,487 miles according to my odometer. What a great trip. We started off here in Durham, NC, and went through Virginia, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois with a stop in Milwaukee to visit the Harley Davidson Museum. Then it was off to Canada through Minnesota and straight north to Winnipeg. We took the Trans Canadian highway west through 4 provinces and into Banff National Park and Jasper National Park. Beautiful! The next stop was Hyder, Alaska and had a beer to toast the occasion. We had ridden to the 48 contiguous states and Alaska was last the states we could ride to.

After Alaska, we headed south into Washington State then down to Route 12 and the Lewis and Clark Trail in Idaho. After a couple days rest in Bozeman, Montana, we headed south to The Great Salt Lake then back home.

We are going to find out if we secured out target property for our Tiny Home Project in about 2 weeks. Keep your fingers crossed!
