Multnomah Falls in the Columbia River Gorge, Oregon.
Craters of the Moon National Park, Eastern Idaho.
Drinking coffee at 6:00 am in the car while watching the sun rise on the Grand Teton Mountains, WY. Keep in mind we still averaged 500 - 600 miles per day even with a scenic stop along the way.
Oops, somehow we missed all the signs about not getting to close to the buffalo. But this is a telephoto lense, so it's not quite as close as it looks. It kept stairing at us, and then I realized that the bright red lady bug was right behind me and the kids. Probably not very bright!
The Bighorn Mountains.
The Badlands of South Dakota.
The wide open windy prairies of the Midwest.
And one of the biggest highlights of all (drum roll)... helping to unload hundreds of baby pigs at our good friends' pig farm in Iowa. We really enjoyed our time there at Pulaski Mennonite Church, and the kids thoroughly loved the opportunity to help out on a real, live pig farm...not that we were really much help. But it was fun!
