"Tell us about five road trips—in your childhood, in your family, in your recent past, with friends, and/or hoped-for-places-to-drive-to. Don't forget the one that stands out as the BEST or as the worst time."1. Boston to Montréal and back with 5 college classmates during winter break—I especially loved stopping for lunch in Hanover, New Hampshire and checking out Dartmouth College. Snow everywhere and it was clean, white, near-pristine!
2. Salt Lake City to Zion National Park
3. Salt Lake City to Capitol Reef National Park—"The Spirit of Capitol Reef..."
4. ...and also to Bryce Canyon National Park
5. The four I listed all were great, though just maybe the Utah National Parks were the best. I listed only big ones that entailed traveling some distance, but I have happy memories of taking short drives up the coast, down the coast, to the Canadian border and to the Mexican border and trust there will be more, both day trips and long ones.
