Fun trip out of town!

We had fun on your day trip yesterday! The first two stops were very unique and had lots of fun and interesting options. The second two were a little more predictable and I would have liked to have been sent somewhere more unexpected.

Absolutely worth doing!

So many cool hidden gems are sprinkled throughout this trip. I loved the short hikes and fun photo moments! I learned so much about the places near me.
