Grand Adventure Roadtrip – Day 3
August 31, 2019
The adventure – roadtrip from the East Coast to the Grand Canyon and back.
- Bicycle in every state we drive through.
- Visit as many national parks as we can.
- Celebrate the wins… a roadtrip isn’t a roadtrip without some ‘misses’.
Gripping the steering wheel tighter doesn’t actually help driving during a storm.
It just makes your fingers ache later.
Secondary lesson. Sometimes Mother Nature doesn’t want you to bike today.
Two wins at the St. Louis Arch in Missouri.
First – stopping and paying for the ‘extras’. We were almost tempted to take a picture as we drove by. Paying for the tram ride to the top and the documentary film was beyond worth it.
Second – visiting on a week day (and a rainy forecast day to boot). No waiting in lines and no fighting for viewing spots at the top.
