An American Road Trip9:45:00 AM
|Two Weeks, Four Wheels, and the Open Road|
I spent the better part of two weeks in the new Fiat 500L on a mission to see some of the grandest monuments in America. Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, and Yellowstone National Park. Leaving from the Los Angeles area up Interstate 15 towards the vast openness that is Utah, I find the 500L is excellent on the highway the 1.4 liter engine is not going to win any drag races, but once you are up to highway speeds it settles and is smooth and quiet.

Pushing on across Wyoming headed towards South Dakota, the sunset was worth pulling over for to watch until the stars came out. The world is a lot quieter up here, you pass through small towns, every now and again, but for the most part it's just you and the open highway.

|Leaving South Dakota|
Headed toward Montana for a quick stop in Billings, it is hard to wrap my head around that the largest city in Montana has less than 110,000 people. But with my visit to Billings concluded I headed towards Yellowstone National Park.

My first time ever visiting Yellowstone and I honestly can't wait to go back and spend some real time exploring it. Camping out of the 500L is perfect, I am not sure if I was in an official campsite but since no one bugged me I rolled my sleeping bag out and spent a night under the stars.
The next morning I would explore a but but I needed to start making my way back to California. Every bend of the road there is something breathtaking at Yellowstone, and I find myself stopping and taking pictures often. I am going to have to plan another adventure to Yellowstone and really explore it.
