Road trip

Matt, my wonderful boyfriend of almost eight years, dreamed of going on a road trip. He talked about driving west from our land-locked state of North Dakota all the way to the Pacific coast. Then, he might drive south along highway 1 to Los Angeles. He would have no itinerary. No real destination. Just a chance to drive and listen to about 4,509 podcasts. I dubbed this his "man trip." 
 
Well, this summer he finally got the chance to make his road trip dream a reality! He drove from North Dakota to Seattle, then from Seattle to LA. For the final leg of his trip, he drove from LA to Las Vegas, where I met up with him and his shaggy beard. (Yay for cheap flights from Grand Forks to Vegas!). We then spent some time in Vegas, Zion National Park, and Denver before heading home. 
 
We stayed at the Cosmopolitan our first night in Vegas and had an awesome view!
After two fun days of relaxing (and shopping!) in Vegas, we hit the road to Zion National Park.
I snapped this photo for my mom. She adores cows. (Hi mom!)
Zion was breathtaking.
We hiked "the Narrows," which involves dunking yourself into cold river water repeatedly.
This is my "thanks for taking a photo of me, boyfriend" face.
After our fun adventure in Utah, we drove to Denver (to go to the My Morning Jacket concert in Red Rocks) then raced home so we could both get back to work :)
