Earthquake Lake

This trip to Yellowstone has really been diverse for us.  Besides our efforts to see some of the “off-the-beaten-path” stuff and doing new things we had not done before at Yellowstone, we also set out to explore the area outside Yellowstone.  In the north, we did the Beartooth Highway. During our travels these last few weeks, … Continue reading Earthquake Lake

The Beartooth Highway

One of the things we have always wanted to do in conjunction with a trip to Yellowstone is drive the Beartooth Scenic Highway.  The highway is actually U.S. Highway 212 that runs between Red Lodge, Montana and Cooke City, Montana.  It scales the 10,947’ Beartooth Pass for 64 miles and 82 curves.  It was crossed … Continue reading The Beartooth Highway

Deception Pass and Friday Harbor: Whidbey Island, WA Part 2

Sea Lions and Shorelines: The Southern Oregon Coast Part 3

The last couple of days here the weather had been much more as we had pictured the Oregon coast; fog, sea breeze and salt mist.  Not the best weather for sweeping landscape and shoreline vistas, but great weather for exploring, eating more seafood and hanging with friends. The RV Rally we were at was in … Continue reading Sea Lions and Shorelines: The Southern Oregon Coast Part 3

Beaches, Lighthouses and Seafood: The Southern Oregon Coast Part 2

Wow, there is so much to see along the Oregon coast.  The state of Oregon has kept the entire coastline public.  No one can own any of it and if you have a business near it, you cannot restrict access.  The result is pristine natural coastlines.  Knowing Jennifer, she wanted to see it all, but … Continue reading Beaches, Lighthouses and Seafood: The Southern Oregon Coast Part 2
