These are the last few snaps I took of our road trip through the East Coast. My grandparents live on this cute little ranch in Michigan and they own a ton of animals. Their donkey, Eeyore, is especially friendly and their mountain dogs are huge, sweet fluff balls. My grandpa also helped fix up the car while we were there getting it ready for the long drive home. From Michigan we drove down to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and found a nice campsite to stay at for the night. The next morning we had planned to hike a portion of the Appalachian Trail, but unfortunately got rained out. I was a little disappointed because I was really looking forward to a day spent in the Smoky Mountains, but then again this was the only day with poor weather so I should be grateful. We made our way back down to my Aunt’s house in Georgia just in time for their Fourth of July celebration. She took us to a water park to watch the fireworks go off over the water. It was the perfect way to end such an unforgettable trip.

NIAGARA!! How could an East Coast Road Trip Extravaganza be complete without a stop to Niagara Falls (both the New York and Canada side of course). We got weird looks from the border patrol heading into Canada because our car was jam packed full of camping gear, but they let us in without too many problems. Niagara Falls was everything I hoped it would be and was the crowning jewel of all the crazy waterfall adventures on this trip. The water matched the sky in vibrance and color and there were rainbows and a light mist, it was really magical. This was my first time in Canada and being so close to Toronto we decided to drive over and see the city for a bit before heading through the Canadian countryside over to Michigan to see my family.

Another treasure hidden in the Finger Lakes region is Letchworth State Park. We camped here for the night and went out the next morning re-energized and ready to explore this park. There are sections of a long, winding road where you can pull off to the side and walk to the edges of cliffs that drop off to a river. The view is insanely vast and the air is fresh and dewy in the early morning. A lot of the mist stems from the enormous waterfall that I had to take panoramics of just to fit it all in one photo. It was like Maid of the Mist without the boat ride and a ton of people cramped together. Actually I saw more deer than I did people the entire time we were there. I am not really sure what it was, but I had never felt so alive and energetic after a night of camping before. Letchworth was so peaceful, yet it made me want to run around and climb on the rocks and laugh at the sky like a giddy idiot. It was just one of those moments that made me beyond happy to be able to travel and experience as much of life as I can.

P.S. If you are reading this then I am currently in the Caribbean and will be back next week. My lovely sister will be uploading the last of my road trip photos as I will have limited access to the internet. You can follow me in real time via my Snapchat (rarrdinosaur) or Instagram.
