BEST ROAD TRIPS OF 2020!

Hello everyone,


Hands down the best thing about 2020 was the fun road trips I got to do with my sister. In this post, we're going to end the year with a lookback at my favorites. Each trip was very unique on its own. This reminds me most of them were taken during the hottest months in Vegas. However, the adventure was there and the experience was so interesting. Are you ready for this road trip journey? 

The journey began when Covid-19 hit. My sister and I, wanted to be in nature, to hike more often, to see different sights and to take photos along the way. That's why we decided during the pandemic to get in the car and use the free weekends we had for some road tripping. This is how the idea for my road trip series came about. I hope it continues in the new year as well! Did you do any road trips? If so, which one sticks-out to you as the most memorable?



One of the most amazing national parks there is in California. I recommend visiting it because it's full of gorgeous stops. You've got the salt flats below sea level at the Badwater Basin. The above photos are from there. Also, there are breathtaking sand dunes, colorful rocks called Artists Palette, plenty of hiking trails, mysterious sailing stones and so much more. It's huge, so I recommend staying in for a weekend or more, so you can really explore the whole park. 

We made the trip there last weekend for one day. Took the drive early morning and got back after sunset. The two places we got to see were the fascinating Badwater Basin and the beautiful Artists Palette. For the rest, we'll definitely go back. There is plenty more to be seen and we can't miss all the photo opportunities.

Death Valley is absolutely a favorite road trip of mine. I didn't expect it to be this stunning and grand. This is why I give it the number one spot! Have you been?



An absolute paradise! Lake Tahoe was a true gem. We treated it as our summer vacation because we had the lake to swim in and the majestic mountain views to look at. For that this road trip completely sparks good vibrations just thinking about it. I wish I could turn back time and relive it once more!

When we got back, I remember I was so eager to add it to my road trip series. I created a detailed travel guide of Lake Tahoe, so if you're interested on where to stay to what places to see while there, here is the complete post

One thing that stuck with me from this trip is how much we humans crave change, having different experiences. It really wakes us up and gives us a fresh kind of hope and energy to continue learning, exploring and growing. Evolution is part of life!     
 


This place is literally...FIREBALLS! The first time we road tripped there, it was on one of the hottest summer days. That was a bit crazy, but so are we! hahaha Eventually, we wanted to finish what we started, so a few months later, my sister and I made a second visit. This time around we were able to fully enjoy the vistas along the way.

I would say most parks take more than one day to explore, so camping would be ideal to disconnect from the world and connect with nature. I'll let you know how it goes, once I attempt my first camping trip. Hopefully in 2021, I will be ready for it! What's something you want to do in 2021 that you're a bit afraid of?       



Another very memorable trip in 2020 was visiting Cathedral Gorge. Its got the most awesome clay formations and plenty of hidden caves to explore. This place is a favorite of mine because not only is it gorgeous, but it's a photographer's paradise. Every way you turn, you can let your camera dance.

The drive to Cathedral Gorge is one of the most scenic. No matter how tired you may be, you'll want to keep your eyes open just to take in the small towns, the green fields and the rocky canyons. 
 



And finally, here is a lookback at the sand dunes, which made this road trip too crazy. Why? Because it started out with some car trouble. I share the whole story here! This event made the trip there way entertaining and now looking back...a bit funny!

This was the first road trip we took that really got us into the idea of road tripping together and discovering new places. That was our way of focusing on something else than the pandemic and trying to make the most of 2020. How did you cope with this year? Aren't you glad 2021 is only weeks away?

Well, that is it for now! Hopefully, I'll see you with more road trips in the near future. The series must continue! Have a wonderful week!!!

  49. I'm almost jealous you made it to all this adventurous trips when I spend my year stuck at home, but so glad you were able to go around. You have some incredible nature around there, the rocky structures are just fascinating for me as we have nothing similar around here.
