Synopsis

Pack your spare tires and extra gasoline for an epic adventure that was a quintessential moment in American automobile tourism. Join us for the inaugural tour of the Park-to-Park Highway, a 5,000-mile motor route that connected all twelve of the National Parks in 1920. Filmmaker Brandon Wade presents this perilous, yet humorous story as ordinary people can finally own automobiles but have few paved roads to drive on.
