I run the insta @nalgenesoftheworld and on August 1st, I thought I'd take an unplanned adventure and snap some photos of my Nalg. This is what happened:

Six weeks. Denver --> LA --> San Fransisco --> Portland --> Seattle --> Vancouver --> Glacier NP --> Grand Teton NP. 12 National Parks, two stolen bikes, and too many lovely nights sleeping at Walmart parking lots.

*********************************************

ITINERARY:

We drove Denver to LA and then slowly up the coast to Vancouver, hitting tons of Parks in between. We then looped around and hit Glacier National Park and Grand Teton National Park.

Start: Denver, CO - Great Sand Dunes National Park, Mesa Verde National Park

Utah - Zion NP, Grand Canyon NP

Arizona - Lake Powell

California - LA, Sequoia NP, Yosemite NP, San Fransisco

Oregon - Coos Bay, Crater Lake NP, Portland, Colombia River Gorge

Washington - Mount Rainer NP, Seattle, Olympic NP, North Cascades NP

BC - Vancouver, Squamish

Montana - Glacier NP

End: Wyoming - Grand Tetons NP

FREE Camping: We stayed at free campsites the whole way using the website https://www.campendium.com/free-camping. It worked flawlessly.

Driving: Podcasts, podcasts, and more podcasts. Our favorites were Science Vs., Ted Radio Hour, This American Life, and The Black Tapes!
