Our Great Adventure Out West – Part III

And now on to the Grand Tetons and the return trip.

Grand Tetons

Loved this sign. And it proved to be true a little later.

Here's a mama moose and her baby in the field behind her.

6 teenage boy bison. Somehow, we just didn't expect this to end well. Luckily, a park ranger showed up and made all the morons who'd gotten out of their cars get back in their cars and drive on.

the scenery was just breathtaking.

more awe-inspiring shots

somewhere in Wyoming. Check out the double-fronted car. Wonder how you get where you're going.

a roadside monument to Abraham Lincoln.

lots and lots of windmills.

The Budweiser factory in Ft. Collins area, CO. Free tour. Free beer. Nice.

some part of the brewing process.

And, of course, the Clydesdales.

river otter sculpture in Loveland, CO

The Stanley Hotel - where Stephen King wrote The Shining

Too bad Kubrick didn't film the movie at the hotel.

And we end our trip with one more national park - Rocky Mountain National Park.

  1. We went to the Coors plant in Golden, CO. It was there we got a call that our son who was house sitting for us back in TN had been attacked by a bear in our back yard. When we had taken him to Rocky Mountain National Park several years earlier, we were there in July and got caught in a blizzard on the pass. The snow banks by the side of the road were still 12 to 15 feet high. We lived in Colorado Springs for 3 years (that is where our son was born) and know how wonderfully unpredictable the weather can be.

    Great pictures in all three posts. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Looking at your pictures brought the Simon and Garfunkel song, “America”, to mind. “They’ve all gone to look for America.” Beautiful.

  3. Judi, I loved all the pictures in all three parts. They brought back some wonderful memories of my visits there. I need to take Jake.

    That Rubble pile is something, isn’t it. Giant stones. Of course, I loved all the *wild kingdom* shots. Lol!

    Enjoy your trip to Orlando!
