Literally, almost every person we knew told us it was going to be very hard to venture out on a 2 week long road trip with a 6 week old baby... and a dog. But Lauren has the time off and I could work along the way so we went for it anyway.
For the most part everybody was right. But it was worth it in the end. We camped at some beautiful spots and saw a lot of pretty fall colors along the way. We didn't do any big adventures along the way but managed to get in some short hikes, long walks, and fun bike rides. The trip in it's entirety ended up being the big adventure for us.
I don't think we could've picked a better time in the year to go through the Sawtooth mountains in Idaho then follow up with a quick trip through Glacier National Park. The leaves were in full autumn mode and the roads were pretty empty.
