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 “Land of Giant Trees” and “The Great American Road Trip.” Part 2 of 2.
