Hey there intrepid family explorers! 

Summer is coming and I know you’re getting ready to disconnect from the chaos of family life – all those endless errands, carpool demands, and extra-curricular BUSYNESS.

One of the best ways to do that is by immersing yourself in wide-open spaces, where you can reconnect with nature and embark on outdoor adventures with your family. (I mean will the kids be whining on the back of an ATV?)

This summer(2024) we’re exchanging the chaos for the thrill of a family road trip to Wyoming. I can’t wait to recenter myself and learn to breathe again in wide open spaces with nothing else on my calendar to do but have fun.

While we’re partnering with Travel Wyoming on this trip, we were given the gift of a blank canvas and the freedom to choose where in Wyoming to visit. 

We decided to road trip the Salt to Stone region in southwest Wyoming. Since we have time constraints due to school schedules, we wanted to visit an area of Wyoming that is easy to get to and get around. It’s only a two-hour direct flight to Salt Lake City from Raleigh and then a two-hour drive to our first stop in the Salt to Stone region. 

We were looking for a lesser-known Wyoming destination filled with stunning landscapes, outdoors adventure activities, and small towns. As with any good trip, we also want to experience indigenous culture and farm-to-table experiences, including Wyoming’s renowned beef cuisine and local breweries.

Through my research (see resources used below) I discovered all of this in the Salt to Stone region: wild horse tours, ATV mountain adventures, fossil digging, paddling opportunities, ghost towns, unique Western pitchfork campfire dinners, and sandboarding down sand dunes that sing.

Our Salt to Stone Itinerary

Our six-day road trip will loop us around the areas of Kemmerer, Pinedale, South Pass City, Lander, and Rock Springs.

We’re renting a 4WD from Salt Lake City airport as its’ recommended for some of the areas we’ll be driving to. Another reason to love a road trip in this region of Wyoming—off road…
