This article is about my month-long road trip from Los Angeles to Yellowstone National Park (the northernmost stop on the trip) and back to Los Angeles in 2022. On the trip I traveled with two good former school friends of mine. During this memorable trip, we visited a little over ten national parks together, all of which were absolutely fascinating. The program was tight but it was all very worthwhile and I would do it again exactly the same way.
In 2017, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to visit the United States for the second time in my life. A few years prior, I had met an American through mutual acquaintances, and we quickly became good friends. We stayed in touch over the years, and when I mentioned that I was interested in visiting the United States again, he invited me to come stay with him in North Carolina. I jumped at the chance to explore a new part of the country and experience the holiday season in a new way.
