We arrived home from our trip to Spain in June, and it seems like we've been home long enough.  Time to hook up the RV and head north.  So by the end of the week you'll find us on US 395 heading up to the Eastern Sierras for the for some hiking in some of our favorite spots in the Tuoumne Meadows region of Yosemite.  As I write this, the news is reporting that the road over Tioga Pass is closed due to a forest fire, so we'll be flexible. From Yosemite we'll continue north to Lassen as this is one place we haven't really explored.  By Labor day we will be found in Southeastern Oregon, meeting up with some of the family out in the middle of nowhere.   Actually we'll be at Hart Mountain Antelope Preserve  because the camping is free.  Free camping is always good.

From there it's east into Idaho, Wyoming and the Dakotas where we will be exploring mostly new territory.  We hope to pop into Canada and pay a visit to a fellow pilgrim in Winnipeg, but as I write this our passports have not returned back from being renewed, so we shall see.  By this point in the trip it should be around the end of September or the beginning of October, so we'll turn south in order to stay ahead of the cold.  From the Dakotas, it's anybody's guess as to where we'll head next as that portion of the trip is up in the air. I'm sure we'll figure something out.


As is the norm on our trips we always leave open the possibility of changing our minds at any given moment to go somewhere else.  That's why it's called Gassaway's Adventures!

Sounds great! And the best thing about your plan - I know the place you are talking about (Yosemite)! :) Still haven't understood that we traveled through such a big area of the US. And already miss the hikes in your beautiful nationalparks...
Have a great time!

Hope the road into Hart Mountain has been graded recently, it can be a long washboard road. But then you have a modern truck. Enjoy. D&D
