Unexpected and welcome stop at the Summit.  At 8,640 feet it’s the highest point on Route 80 west of the Mississippi. FYI, at 2,250, the highest point on Route 80 east of the Mississippi is at mile marker 111 in Clearfield County, Pennsylvania.

Yellowstone was one of our more amazing stops. Pictures don’t do justice to the variety and weirdness of the strange and spectacular thermal features or the beauty of the canyon and rivers that run through the area.

From the alien volcanic landscape of Yellowstone to the majesty of the Grand Tetons next door along with a pleasant stay in the city of Jackson.
