The Best Of The West

I think I’ve been on the road long enough for a bit of a photo retrospective don’t you? Its almost three months now and before I hit the highway on Friday up North to Alaska, I felt like paying homage to the two places out here that I’ve especially enjoyed. I was so completely taken with the natural beauty in this part of the world, it completely exceeded all of my expectations! So, without further adieu the best of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks (with a few shots of hiking around Bozeman thrown in for good measure)

    Didn’t you get the park flyer with the cartoon drawing of the guy who gets skewered in the patoot when he gets too close to a buffalo?

    I was in a car using a zoom. I will probably be going to Victoria on the way down the coast after Alaska. I’m going to liberate a finger monkey for Sammy this time!

    Beautiful pictures, beautiful memories….and really the best of the west.

    Do I dare ask….what is a finger monkey?

    Hope you’re well…safe travels!

      They were these adorable tiny little monkeys we were at some sort of exhibit and I wanted to buy one, of course the woman looked at me like I was crazy and Jen has teased me about it ever since!
