We made it home yesterday after being on the road for the past 3 weeks and over 4000 miles.   As I stated when I started this trip our destination was Yellowstone. 

Before I list the places in the picture’s I would like to say that this has been by far one of the best vacations we have taken.   I have been out west once before about 50 years ago and I had forgotten just how beautiful that part of our country is.   I'm glad we got to see so many wonderful things.
