It started in Colorado, then through Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, and finally where I’m writing this in Illinois. That’s eight states. I’m calling it the “six states trip” because I’ve been to Illinois and Colorado in the past. So, six new states.
I wrote about Nebraska and the Dakotas yesterday and today I’m officially checking the boxes on Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin. I had unique experiences in each of these states and feel good about being accountable to myself about having visited them.
The whole trip was right about 2,000 miles which I managed to pull off in four long days of driving, with lots of intense hiking and running each day at various locations. I have three states left – Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Alaska.
I’ll post pictures later from some of the amazing individual places I’ve been on this trip.
