After visiting the Badlands and Mount Rushmore, we headed into Wyoming. I told everyone that Wyoming should be called “The Antelope State” because they are EVERYWHERE!
Snowy Mountains ahead!
And into Montana….the Yellowstone River.
This cool statue was in Bozeman, Montana. I instantly fell madly in love with the city of Bozeman, and decided that if ever I needed to choose some place to live besides Alaska, that would be the place.
Now….there is no doubt as to how the Rockies got their name. As we came into these mountains, they were covered with MASSIVE boulders.
Our second stop in Montana, was Missoula. As we came over the mountains nearing the city, this was the view along the interstate.
The next day we drove through the top of Idaho, and into Washington State. Northern Idaho is BEAUTIFUL! As far as all the natural beauty of the US we have seen so far, I think that western Montana, and northern Idaho are the most beautiful of all.
Stopping at a rest stop along a national forest, looking across the river up the side of a mountain.
Next stop, Grand Coulee Dam in Washington.
Yep. It’s big. Real Big.
That night we stopped at a little bitty “redneck yacht club” RV park. It was tiny, cramped, old, and cheap. But did it ever have a view!
Sunset at the redneck yacht club.
In all actuality, this was Lake Lenoir, near Coulee City. The view the next morning.
The journey continues…..
