Our 2014 Family Road Trip to California

The one year anniversary of our great homeschooling road trip is fast approaching.  Last April, (while 4 months pregnant), we took an impromptu road trip from Seattle to Los Angeles, California. We drove over 2,400 miles (round trip).  We traveled through mountains, farmland, cities, small towns and along the shoreline.  Our favorite parts of the trip were seeing Mt. Shasta, Mt. St. Helen and the redwoods at Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park (this was homeschooling at its best!).  It was an amazing trip and one that our whole family will treasure for a long time to come.  Sure, driving for hours on end was difficult with two kids in the car (and a third on the way), but it was completely worth it.   No matter how hard it was for my husband and I, it was something we wanted our children to experience… this great country firsthand.  It’s one thing to learn about geography from a book, it’s another thing to live it.

Here are some of my favorite photographs from the trip.
