We recently took a road trip from Port Angeles, Washington, down the Pacific Coast to Guadalajara in Mexico. We visited many national and state parks on the way - a great treat for me as I'm from the UK and I'm sure half of these parks are bigger than my entire country!!!

We kept a blog of our trip - detailing stories, hikes, photos and even videos from the trip.

We covered 3000 miles in 16 days and visited a variety of parks, from the Olympic National Park and Mt St Helen's National Park in Washington on through the sand dunes of Oregon and the Redwoods of California, before eventually passing Saguaro National Park before crossing the border into Mexico.
