Family road trip to Wyoming: Our Star Valley Ranch experience


We woke up ridiculously early and packed the kids into our Audi Q7 for a 14-hour road trip. 1100 miles were covered in no time and by evening we rolled into Justin's place in Star Valley Ranch, Wyoming. Exhausted, but thrilled to finally be there!



The kids were in heaven – this was like no other family vacation we’ve ever done. Time raced by, and suddenly we wished we'd planned a whole month instead of just a week. As the designated family photographer, I snapped away the entire time. Laughter, road snacks, stunning Wyoming views – I tried to capture every memory.


Star Valley Ranch was the perfect escape. The kids ran free, the dogs joined the fun, and I got some amazing lifestyle photos of those breathtaking Wyoming landscapes. We hated to leave, but all good things must come to an end, right?
