This summer, we packed up the kids, the camper, and the Suburban, and took off for a month. We went to the Badlands, Mt. Rushmore, Devil's Tower, Yellowstone Nat'l Park, Grand Teton Nat'l Park, Glacier Nat'l Park, then up into Canada and Waterton Lakes Nat'l Park, Calgary, and back east to WInnipeg, back down into the USA through ND, stopped by Lake Superior and Mall of America, then home to IN. Tiring, but fun!

Devil's Tower, WY, as seen from our campsite

Bluebell Pool, West Thumb Geyser Basin, Yellowstone Nat'l Park, WY- that was some HOT steam! And most of the hot springs/geysers have at least a slight sulphur smell.

Old Faithful, Yellowstone Nat'l Park, WY 

Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone Nat'l Park, WY. All the sulphur and other mineral in the springs have done that to the rock. A little stinky, but pretty in it's own way.

It looks like fun!  We camped in the Black Hills this summer, and visited Grand Teton and Yellowstone last fall.  They're great vacation destinations.

Beautiful pics.  My brother lives in that general neighborhood and has been to all of those places many times.  I want to visit one of these days.

Nice! Brings back memories. We used to do that as a family when I was a kid. Just pack, jump in a car & travel the country.
