Summer 2016: Colorado and the NorthWest

Premium Traveler
This year we're starting our trip sooner--May 18th and we'll be home sooner too--September 8th.

Most of the stops during our trip this year will be revisiting places we've been during previous trips.

We'll be enjoying 6 weeks in cool Colorado to start our 2016 summer trip. From there we travel northwest to Kent, Washington with sight seeing stops in Utah, Idaho, Oregon and Washington. We'll see our great granddaughter while we're in Kent (she's one year old) and visit with other friends.

We consider Kent the transition from the outbound to homebound segments of our trip. Maryann wanted to see the San Juan Islands so that will be the first stop in the homebound segment. We've included two stops on the Olympic Peninsula before heading south along the Pacific Coast; this will be our first southbound trip along the coast--we've traveled northbound on three previous trips.

We've included a stop in Napa, California which will be our first visit wine country.
