Some favourites that haven’t already been posted:

Antelope island state park, the haze making the great salt lake look like a painting.

Vines growing under Mount Hood, such a picture perfect picture.

Vintage cookery books at Powell’s. I had about 45mins to explore, after I walked through all the rooms to get pictures I spent most of my time at the food & drink shelf.

Old Faithful.

Fisherman at Yellowstone lake whilst we were having lunch. We were respectfully quiet, watching him cast.

I wish we had more time to try the pies at the purple pie place in custer.

The finale at crazy horse laser & light show.

Panorama badlands national park.

The weather was fine, the only major rain we encountered was heavy isolated showers as we headed towards Bozeman, the rain patches were so dense we could see them.

Fire danger never went above moderate.

We saw a lot of buffalo, both real and sculptures:
