A Look At Our Top Ten Favorite Photos From The Trip So Far! – Day 69

With one-fifth of the states now in the rear view mirror, and just one day shy of our 70th day on the road, we thought it would be a great time to take a look at our top 10 favorite photos of the trip so far.

I don’t think we can actually put a number to each one to rank them, because they are all special in their own way.

So in no particular order, here are our top 10 favorite photos so far.

Our Top 10 Favorite Photos From The Trip So Far

The Orca “Killer Whale” Photo

One of our favorite days on the trip so far! What an incredible day it was to head out into Puget sounds for a whale watching trip, and were rewarded with some amazing sights and sounds. Of all the great photos from the day, this one took the cake. It was amazing to see these giant creatures flip their tail up and over into the Pacific ocean.

Mt Rushmore With The Camper

What a day it was! The sun was shining, and as fate would have it, Mt. Rushmore was in the background. Our time in South Dakota was great, from Mount Rushmore to the Badlands and more.

The Bison at Yellowstone National Park

As we drove around the scenic byway towards Fisher’s Bridge, we saw several Bison. This one was several feet from us, but with the magic of a zoom lens, we were able to get an up close picture of him as he was forging on the grass.

Canyonlands National Park – And The Arches

Our entire experience in Moab was incredible. What an amazing place! With two National parks in the vicinity, there was no shortage of great hikes and sites to see. This is one of our favorite photos from two day’s of hiking.

Boondocking At Lake Little Moreau

With no one around for miles, our evening camping and boondocking at Lake Moreau was nothing short of magical. We camped right up by the edge of the stunning lake, grilled out, and finished the night looking up at the stars.

The Amtrak Train Ride – The Picture Window

The Amtrak train ride down the coast was one for the memory books. Of all the great sights, this is one of my favorites – taken from the observation car as we watched the sun set over the coast and the Pacific.

An Evening Camping On The Yellowstone River

What a night it was on the banks of Yellowstone River. With the river rolling by, and a roaring fire to keep warm, it is another of our most favorite evenings!

The Alpaca Farm Photo

One of the best things about this trip is the opportunity to stay at some really neat places. Like this Alpaca farm in Colorado. And this photo says it all!

Shoshone Falls – Idaho

Shoshone Falls was gorgeous in October! This was one of the most unexpected finds on the trip for us so far. We just never knew the beauty the entire state of Idaho had – and it will definitely be a state we go back to again!

Leaving The Farm To Start – September 9th

It seems like just yesterday. This photo was taken the morning of September 9th, just before we pulled out to start the trip. Every time we see this photo, we both can remember all of the excitement we had to get started.
