10 Day Road Trip: US & Canada

In June of 2019, my friend Jen and I took a trip that began in Montana and ended in Washington state, that detoured through Canada. We had both signed up for a half marathon through Adventure Races in Glacier National Park. Since we were already flying out to Montana, we decided to make a road trip of it. You can read about the highlights, hours, and miles below. Enjoy!
