Here’s the second blog instalment from our professional campervanner (that a thing?) Sophie Lott. She’s taking us on the road trip of a life time, so get ready to hit the Rocky Mountain high trail, no looking back…
Want to experience the freedom of America’s open roads, but fancy getting away from the East and West coast tourist trails? Well, we’ve found a route that is perfect for you! The Rocky Mountain High road trip allows you to immerse yourself in the rustic charms of the Native American soil, whilst plunging you into the fresh alpine landscapes of Colorado and New Mexico. This route offers a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of busy tourist attractions and offers you a more authentic experience of America’s environmental beauties.
