    Welp, here's a very short picture synopsis of my recent roadtrip.

    Interesting moments of the trip:

    #1. Almost getting trampled by buffalo after some crazy french kid decided to try and piss them off and run towards me for help.
    #2. The car throwing a trouble code at 14,000 feet.
    #3. Seeing a restaraunt named "The Bearded Clam".
    #4. The car not staying in 1st gear while descending Pike's Peak.
    #5. Watching someone run a jet-ski into a boat because they didn't realize that you have to be on the throttle to turn jet drive machinery. :haha: :screwy:

    Pictures:
    #1. Devil's Tower
    #2. Male Bison and Crazy French Kid
    #3. Old Faithful
    #4. Yellowstone's Lower Falls
    #5. A View Of The Grand Teton's

    I wanna GO!!

    If I have MY way--I'll see the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone Park before I'm too much older and unable to hike it!..I DROOL over pictures like those!..I'd love to see Old Faithful,and that waterfall!--and those Cliffs! :eek1: --you dont see ANYTHING like that in new england!..if I do get there,you'll have to DRAG me back here... :bow:

    When I went to see Kathy Mattea on Cape Cod last month,her fan club president who lives near Ogden Utah said she LOVED Cape Cod--but could not see WHY anyone would want to vacation there,its so crowded and traffic is an absolute nightmare!..when I told her if she wanted solitude,she'd have to go to New Hampshire to the white mountains--I mentioned MT.Washington is 5000+ feet above sea level,and she just went "PPFFHHT!..We wouldn't even bother building a ski lift on an anthill THAT high!"...then she told me several mountains near her house are nearly 10,000 ft high! :eek1: ..I wonder how she can breathe that high up??--..and I thought I was a "hilbilly"... :crazy:

    Great pictures!!..thanks for sharing them with us!.. :bow:
