When we started planning for this trip we thought we would have plenty of time to see everything we wanted to see, but google map quickly revealed that we are going to run out of time well before we run out of places to see, so we had to prioritise and here is where we are planning to go . . . .
. . . . start in Vancouver BC Canada, then the North West USA, drive through BC and Yukon to Alaska and south to Glacier NP, Yellowstone, Teton, Zion, Bryce, and then onto Denver Co, through South Dakota to Minneapolis, and finish off in Winnipeg and Churchill, before starting the South American leg of our trip.
We are planning to spend the northern winter at Big White BC and end our journey with a Panama Canal cruise.
. . . it is then home via Japan.
