1973 United States Cross Country Camping Trip Archives
In 1973 Four Friends took the summer off and went camping from July 8th to after Labor Day. This is an incomplete gallery of photos taken in the Road Trip. Ultimately there will be photos from CT to CA through the American West and then up the west coast to Vancouver then across Canada to Maine and eventually back to CT.

It starts from New England to the mid West Coast via mountains, canyons and deserts, up to Vancouver and back through Canada ending on the coast of Maine. More images from this 10 weeks of 18 National Parks, some cities and a lot of miscellaneous back country will be added along the way.
