Pack your spare tires and extra provisions for an epic adventure that was a quintessential moment in American automobile tourism. Join us on the 76-day inaugural tour of the Park-to-Park Highway, a 5,000-mile route that connected all 12 of the national parks in 1920.

Filmmaker Brandon Wade presents this perilous, yet lighthearted story about a time when ordinary people could finally own automobiles but had few paved roads to drive on.

Stories include “For the Benefit & Enjoyment of the People” and “See America First.” Part 1 of 2.

Running time: 56 minutes
