    Well, I did.

    Last week we went West, for the first time to see part of fly-over country first hand. And it was big, wide, exhilarating.
    So, let me invite you to see some of it with me....

    [​IMG]
    Bear Lake, Utah, over my right shoulder...over 40 miles long, but not even on most maps.


    [​IMG]
    Yellowstone River, Wyoming...views like this throughout the park.


    [​IMG]
    The Grand Tetons....snow covered in July.


    [​IMG]
    Buffalo Bill Historic Museum, Cody, Wyoming...a bit of intentional humor in this pic.


    [​IMG]
    Yep...Old Faithful. 3min and 40 sec of geyser! Every hour and a half!


    [​IMG]
    Devil's Tower, South Dakota...so big that it can be seen from 100 miles away!


    [​IMG]
    The Badlands...those peaks are more clay than stone, and eroding about 1 inch per year.

    I don't have to tell you, do I.
    Magnificent.

    What a country.
    We're blessed.

    This is pretty much the view from my parents kitchen and dining room windows just south of Colorado Springs.
