Day 5: Crossing Northern MontanaPosted October 19, 2014 by Holly Hayes Part of: Pacific to Mississippi Road Trip
Day 5 was mostly about making good eastward progress, so I spent most of my time behind the wheel. As usual, I had rejected the usual freeway route (I-90 in this case) in favor of a smaller highway (Highway 2), and was glad I did.

Called the "Crown of the Continent," it contains over 1 million acres of mountains, lakes, hiking trails, historic sites, and wildlife. It was designated a World Heritage Site in 1995.
Day 3: A Sunny Autumn Day in Kalispell, MontanaPosted October 7, 2014 by Holly Hayes Part of: Pacific to Mississippi Road Trip
I spent two nights in the small town of Kalispell, Montana, and had a great time. The sun was shining, the leaves were turning colors, the downtown was quiet and walkable, there were many good lodging options and interesting things to check out, and it's right next to Glacier National Park. Highly recommended.

Day 1: Portland to SpokanePosted September 24, 2014 by Holly Hayes Part of: Pacific to Mississippi Road Trip
This is the first post in a series on a roadtrip from Oregon to Minnesota - and possibly beyond! As usual, I'm avoiding freeways, visiting historic places, staying in historic hotels, and eating in historic restaurants. The first day I drove from Portland, OR to Spokane, WA, with many stops along the way.
