I'm currently exploring the USA by RV for good times, delicious food, off the beaten path. The Wandering Road was inspired by the often-frustrating lack of current information for locations that aren’t the largest cities. My goal for the blog and social media channels is to be a trusted guide to where to eat and what to do on my readers’ next Great American Road Trip. Since I grew up rural and my career has been spent in agriculture, I am particularly fond of highlighting small towns, local farms and hidden gem destinations in my writing.

Pretty sure this view is what Muir meant when he said “the mountains are calling and I must go.” . . . . #wanderingroad #roadtripusa #wanderingroad #discoveramerica #roadtrippers #visittheusa #yellowstonecountry #hikemontana #eastrosebudtrail #thebeatenpath #eastrosebud #montanamoment #custergallatinnationalforest #absarokabeartoothwilderness

Soaking up every late summer moment around here. So grateful for last weekend’s increasingly rare mix of perfect temps and no wildfire smoke. Have you hiked the Pelican Valley trail in Yellowstone? The trailhead is a couple miles east of Fishing Bridge and is only open during daylight hours during part of the year since it is prime bear habitat. I haven’t explored that part of the park near enough but I will definitely return. . . . . #wanderingroad #roadtripusa #discoveramerica #roadtrippers #visittheusa #livingstonmontana #yellowstonecountry #hikeyellowstone #bisonofyellowstone #pelicanvalley #pelicanvalleyyellowstone #thatswy #yellowstonenps #yellowstonepledge #pelicanvalleytrail

Headed into this @redantspantsmusicfestival weekend like… The Red Ants Pants Music Festival was founded in 2011. It is dedicated to women’s leadership, working family farms and ranches, and rural communities. Here’s to three days of music, fun… and a certain seven-year-old’s festival fashion. ❤️ . . . . #wanderingroad #roadtripusa #wanderingroad #discoveramerica #roadtrippers #visittheusa #whitesulphurspringsmt #centralmontana #smalltownusa #summerinmontana #montanamoment #redantspantsmusicfestival #livefromthebackpasture

One week ago: 🌙 over @dwightyoakam at @theoldsaloon. It’s summer in Montana and life is good. . . . . #wanderingroad #roadtripusa #wanderingroad #discoveramerica #roadtrippers #visittheusa #livingstonmontana #explorelivingston #smalltownusa #summerinmontana #yellowstonecountry #dwightyoakam #guitarsandcadillacs #hillbillymusic

In Livingston, the Fourth of July is more of a marathon than a sprint. We did it up right this weekend - rodeo, parade, and three nights of fireworks… not to mention a perfect dinner at @2ndstbistro. And lots of lawn games. Hope you had a wonderful Independence Day! 🇺🇸❤️ . . . . #wanderingroad #roadtripusa #wanderingroad #discoveramerica #roadtrippers #visittheusa #fourthofjuly #independenceday #livingstonroundup #livingstonrounduprodeo #livingstonmontana #explorelivingston #smalltownusa #smalltowncharm #americana #montanamoment #bigskycountry #paradisevalley

Oh how I love the Fourth of July. So here’s a throwback to the time we took Teddy (signed by Jayson Werth, when I got to meet him at an organic farming conference) to Mount Rushmore. Nearby Custer remains one of my favorite towns. A not-so-secret fun fact about Mount Rushmore: you can try vanilla ice cream made according to Thomas Jefferson’s recipe. And it’s delicious. We’re celebrating the Fourth in Montana this year and I’m oh-so-excited about it. 🇺🇸🤠🎉 . . . . #wanderingroad #roadtripusa #wanderingroad #discoveramerica #roadtrippers #visittheusa #fourthofjuly #independenceday #thomasjefferson #mountrushmore #jaysonwerth #natitude #washingtonnationals

Washington’s Yakima Valley. You may have never visited it in person (yet), but you’ve most likely have enjoyed some 🍺, 🍷, or 🍐 from here. I love the wineries here. Friendly, down-to-earth, with absolutely gorgeous views, and some of the tastiest bold reds around. Pictured: @vanarnam_vineyards. Get the cab franc! And oh yeah, in the paraphrased words of the late, great Carrie Fisher: if you get the chance to eat asparagus tamales from Los Hernandez: DO IT! (Swipe for #tamalegoalz.) . . . . #wanderingroad #roadtripusa #wanderingroad #discoveramerica #roadtrippers #visittheusa #yakimavalley #foodblogger #foodtravel #loshernandeztamales #rattlesnakehillsava #vanarnamvineyards #rvtravel #rvlife #fulltimerv #thisisyakima #winecountry #wawine #zillahwinecountry #uniongapwa #drinkyakima #tamaleseason #windowtotheworld #thorchateau

Did someone say - Montana heatwave? It got into the upper 90s this week but I see a forecast of 61 degrees coming up this weekend and I am not mad about it. Also, I love the architecture of the Mammoth Hot Springs District. . . . . #wanderingroad #roadtripusa #yellowstonecountry #montanamoment #onlyinmontana #livingstonmontana #explorelivingstonmt #yellowstonecountry #montanagram #summerinmontana #yellowstonenps #yellowstonenationalpark #yellowstonepledge #yellowstoneinwinter #elkofyellowstone #thatswy

A few weeks ago, we stopped in @travelsouthernoregon. I was looking for somewhere new to explore on our route back up to Montana - while avoiding the crowds of other campers who already seem to be hitting the road for the summer. And let me just say that @travelmedford definitely did not disappoint! I love this beautiful, quiet part of Oregon that has lots to do and plenty of room to roam. Here are some of our favorite finds from the Rogue Valley: 🍷 Drink: this region has so many wineries to choose from! I especially enjoyed @2hawkwinery and @DunbarFarmsofMedford. 🧀 Eat: a grilled cheese at @RogueCreamery, home of the first American blue cheese to be chosen as best in the world. 🏕 Stay: Valley of the Rogue @oregonstateparks is a beautiful, convenient campground. We also boondocked at Cracker Barrel. 😎 🥾 Hike: the Upper and Lower Table Rock trails (managed by @mypubliclands) are only a few minutes from town and provide the best views of the city, valley, and mountains. Plus, excellent bird watching. 👩🏻‍🌾 Shop: the @rvgrowersmarket has a great selection. Definitely make time to stroll around Ashland. The nearby historic small town of Jacksonville is also a great place to spend an afternoon.

The next time you find yourself traveling waaaaaay up north in California on I-5, take a little detour to Fort Jones to visit the @fivemarysfarms Burgerhouse. (She’s also a great Instagram follow - such an inspiring and entrepreneurial ranch family. ) One of the best things about traveling is experiencing local food, and it doesn’t get any more local than this. . . . . #wanderingroad #discoveramerica #roadtrippers #visittheusa #roadtripusa #fulltimerv #homeiswhereyouparkit #rvlife #femaletravelbloggers #proudtobeftb #travelblogger #foodtravel #thefeedfeed #eatlocal #shopsmall #fortjones #fivemarysburgerhouse #m5burgerhouse #onlyinnortherncalifornia #siskiyoucounty #visitcalifornia

🎶 Reunited [ with The Chateau ] and it feels so good! 🎶 We have officially moved back in to the RV and are rolling north. Our car is in Montana, so our travel style will shift a bit. I’m calling this our “no reservations” tour since we are sticking to small towns and less touristy places to try to avoid crowds... and no we haven’t booked any campgrounds, we’re taking it one day at a time. Our first stop was a true gem, @lassennps . Here are a few tips if you plan to roll this way soon. Scroll for more photos! 🚍 RVs can park overnight in the Kohm Yah-mah-nee visitor center parking lot for $10/night. 💻 While the visitor center has wifi, don’t count on it for more than checking emails. However, you can find both Verizon and ATT cell service just a few miles outside the southwest park entrance, or up at the Bumpass Hell parking lot. (A great place to work with a view!) 🌋 This place is full of old volcanoes that will likely erupt again... but exactly when, who knows? The last time the namesake Mt Lassen erupted was 1921. You can find some very sulphur-y thermal features here similar to what you see at Yellowstone. 🏞 Don’t skip the Mill Creek Falls waterfall trail. The trailhead starts at the visitor center and it’s honestly one of the best waterfalls I’ve seen in North America. It’s like a 4 mile hike and so worth it! 🌌 Don’t forget to look up at night! Half the park is after dark. 🗓 Check road conditions before you go. The main highway through the park usually opens in late May/early June (when snow is cleared) but most trails are still snow covered right now. Wildflowers will likely be blooming in a couple weeks - we were just a bit too early to catch them! . . . . #wanderingroad #discoveramerica #roadtrippers #visittheusa #roadtripusa #fulltimerv #homeiswhereyouparkit #rvlife #femaletravelbloggers #proudtobeftb #travelblogger #lassenvolcanicnps #lassenvolcanicnationalpark #norcal #onlyinnortherncalifornia #findyourpark

I just got my second vaccine, the sun is shining, and I can’t stop day dreaming about summer concerts. This is an old photo but here’s hoping a return to normalcy is coming soon. ❤️ . . . #wanderingroad #roadtripusa #yellowstonecountry #montanamoment #onlyinmontana #livingstonmontana #explorelivingstonmt #yellowstonecountry #montanagram #theoldsaloon #summerinmontana

❤️🍣 If you ask me, it’s always a great day for sushi at @neptuneseatery. It was our first stop to officially welcome @vleighh to town! . . . . #wanderingroad #roadtripusa #yellowstonecountry #montanamoment #onlyinmontana #livingstonmontana #explorelivingstonmt #sushi #yellowstonecountry

Stumbled on this photo from our early 2019 trip to @grandcanyonnps and it’s making me even more antsy to get back on the road. *Soon.* The Desert Watchtower is such a gem. Dating back to 1932, Mary Colter based the design on the architecture of the ancestral Puebloan people. Today it is a lovely, quiet place to rest and reflect on the canyon’s stunning views. . . . . #wanderingroad #visitarizona #gogrand #grandcanyonnps #goparks #desertlife #arizona #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #rvlife #fulltimerv #southwest #desertwatchtower #marycolter

One week ago: all.the.tracks spotted at a snowy Slough Creek. Have you visited @yellowstonenps in the winter?
