I didn't make it to Glacier National Park (again!), because the Going to the Sun Road was still closed at the time I would have been there. But, all was not lost ... instead, I stayed a few days in northern Washington near the Canadian border, and it was beautiful. I also got to experience the beautiful San Juan Islands off the coast of Washington. I'll see Glacier ... next time!
If I had to choose a couple of the best parts, it would have to be seeing the Great Sand Dunes in all their glory, then 10 minutes later covered in snow by a freak snow storm.
. . . 10 minutes later!
Also, I loved Portland, Oregon. That's because I am a good eater, and I had my choice of many vegan food carts there. I tried, but it was impossible to eat at them all - I'll be baaaack!
Buffalo in Yellowstone are always a thrill with their obvious kiss-my-ass attitude.
Sacajawea's grave on the Wind River Indian Reservation was very touching. I wasn't headed there, but passed a sign along the road that pointed to her cemetery. She was instrumental in the Lewis and Clark Expedition in 1805 - 1806, and I was honored to pay my respects.
Last, but not least, The Grand Tetons. They are, indeed, grand!
