On July 26, 2010 we embarked on a road trip that would take us through 5 states and almost 4000 miles, over 30 days. Along the way we would have the opportunity not only to see the beauty of God's creative hand, but share some memorable moments with family and friends. Thanks to digital technology, we took over 700 photos and over 1 hours worth of video. Slide shows of the trip have been arranged in groups of days (ie Days 1-4). Below are links to the individual slide shows with a brief description of the show's contents. Below the description will be links to the video shot during those days.
