Though technically not an official part of my DTS experience, the road trip back home was equally as full of adventure as the 5 months leading up to it. Two of the people I met in WA that I can now call my closest friends and I took the long way back to Minnesota from Washington. We spent 6 days driving through and visiting iconic landmarks in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, Nebraska, Iowa, and Minnesota. It was truly the perfect way to close out the season.

Here is a collection of my favorite photos from our 6-day adventure.
