Back Roads


I picked up my brand new Forester on May 31, 2009, and 27 days later I took an amazing road trip. Over nine days I traveled through seven states, enjoyed five national parks, took more than 2,500 photographs, and traveled 4,321 miles. I drove the back roads when I could on my quest to see the Badlands, Mt. Rushmore, Glacier National Park, Yellowstone, the Tetons, and Rocky Mountain National Park. This trip began my love affair with my Subaru.


The photo is of my Subaru on the Going-to-the-Sun Road, which had just opened two days before I got to Glacier National Park. This is by far the best vehicle I have ever owned! Thank you Subaru.

Oregon High


After 30 years of living in Oregon, we finally drove to fabled Steens Mountain, in the remote southeast part of the state. The eight-hour drive each way in our 2006 Tribeca was wonderful, even with a huge cargo of camping equipment.


The winding, gravel road to the summit goes to 9,500 feet, the highest road in Oregon. Our trusty Tribeca, shown here at 9,500 feet, handled like a dream, which matched our dreamlike setting.

Northern Winter


My wife and I recently moved to central Alaska during the wintertime and drove our 2010 Forester across the Alaskan Highway all the way from Colorado. Some of the most dangerous stretches of highway were on packed snow and ice, but the Forester brought us to our new home safely. With hundreds of miles between service stations and temperatures ranging from -10 to -20 degrees, there wasn’t a vehicle we trusted more than the Forester. Thanks, Subaru!
