  • Olympic National Park: Hoh Rain Forest

~ Carmen We  recently completed a 2,224 miles epic Texas Barbecue Road Trip  (see Texas Barbecue Road Trip)! You can’t have a complete tour of Texas hill country without spending at least a day or two in Austin, Texas.  Since Austin prides itself in its motto “Keep Austin Weird”,  we decided to spend our one allotted......
