Ellie Hit the Open Road to Tour the American West

“My Make-A-Wish trip compared to nothing else in my life. It was awesome. ”

Ellie at Grand CanyonFor 12-year-old Ellie of North Ferrisburg, nothing could be better than a tour of the American West via RV. The family hit the open road and created a lifetime of memories on their wish adventure.

“I loved the RV, it was so cool being able to stretch out in the back while my dad drove," said Ellie. "We went to Niagara Falls first. We got to ride a boat under the falls, walk a cliff that went right beside the falls! I liked the Mount Rushmore area the best. We rode in a helicopter at The Grand Canyon. The views of The Grand Canyon were awesome. The last stop on our journey was in St. Louis. I wanted to go up in the arch. I couldn't believe the views from the top, or the elevator we had to ride to the top. My Make-A-Wish trip compared to nothing else in my life. It was awesome."
