Rust Belt Road Trip – Aug 2013


5 states, 1,999.9 miles driven, 12 national parks, 2 high points of flat states, and a bunch of other roadside oddities and attractions. I’ve now completed the states of Ohio, Michigan, and West Virginia. I also started a new tradition of counting the national parks, as well as recorded quite a few jump shots.

Places visited

  • Charles Young Buffalo Soldiers National Monument
  • Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historic Park
  • River Raisin National Battlefield Park
  • Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial
  • James A Garfield National Historic Site

  • Bluestone National Scenic River
  • New River Gorge National River
  • Gauley River National Recreation Area

  • Pro Football Hall of Fame (Canton)

I collected 24 park passport stamps on this trip.
