Roadtrip USA: 27 Amazing Photos to Inspire You

Often when we talk to our friends back home they ask us what our favorite countries are in the world. And they are generally surprised when the good ‘ol US of A makes our top 10 list. Sometimes we get so caught up in the hype of international travel we forget how incredible and diverse the scenery is in our own backyard.

That is why in the fall of 2016 we decided to pack up our lives and embark on a 6-month roadtrip from Portland, Oregon to Key West Florida and back again. With plenty of meandering along the way we managed to rack up over 22,000 miles on our 1994 Ford Bronco and ~150 nights camped under the stars in the spectacular National Parks and public lands of the United States.

Here are a few of our favorite pictures we took along the way. We hope they inspire you to take your own roadtrip across this beautiful country!

Buckskin Gulch, Utah

Buckskin Gulch is the longest slot canyon in the US. It is also located just a short distance from the famous ‘Wave’ in Northern Arizona. You can hike the entire 24-miles of the canyon or just journey in a short distance and return the way you came. Prepare to be awed by the towering sandstone walls of the narrow canyon!
