Mount Ranier - Washington
Mount Rainer has to be the single most impressive and spectacular object I have seen on our journeys. This place is a must see.
Mount Shasta - California
This picture was taken from Lower Klamath Lake Rd. Since Mt Shasta is relatively isolated and is prominent due to its height, I have surmised it to be Mt Shasta. It seems we rode all around this area and never quite made it to the actual mountain.
Multinomah Falls - Historic Columbia River Highway - Oregon
This picture should be in portrait mode, however that does not do well for making calendars. This is only a small segment of the falls to show the bridge and falls as a backdrop.
Crown Point Vista House - Historic Columbia River Highway - Oregon
The Columbia River Highway is a great ride, with many views of the Columbia River. This picture was taken from Portland Women's Forum State Scenic Viewpoint.
Mount St Helens - Washington
The ride to Mt St Helens is worth the trip. This is taken from the Johnson Observatory at the end of Hwy 504. The movie is spectacular, as well as the many personal stories about the eruption in 1980
Norris Geyser Basin - Yellowstone National Park - Wyoming
This was our second trip to Yellowstone and we stopped here because the Norris Museum was a National Historic Landmark. This pool that sits right out back of the Norris Museum looks like a giant hot tub. It is appropiately named the Bathtub Spring
Shoshone Falls - Twin Falls Idaho
We were looking for the marker for Evil Knievel's jump across the Snake River and never found it. We were told the marker was on private property. Just outside of Twin Falls, where we had briefly stopped for a picture, a guy pulled up asking if we knew where the Falls were. Not finding the marker we side tracked to see the falls. Well worth it.
Jupiter - Golden Spike National Historic Site - Utah
This was suppose to be one of those grab and run stamp locations and we ended up spending something like 3 hours here. Who can resist up close encounters with old steam engines.
Hotel Nevada - Ely Nevada
One of the places we stayed on our trip. A nights stay is only $35 and you are warned about the varying temperatures when taking a shower. This place has character and well worth a stay for the experience. Parked outside is a long string of HD's with my FJR feeling very loney on the right.
Going to the Sun Road - Glacier National Park - Montana
In 2010 the whole purpose of our trip was to ride the Going to the Sun road. This year we got to the ride from end to end on the bike. The views are spectacular and this should be on everyone's list.
The Loneliest Road in America - US 50 - Nevada
Not only the loneliest but wind is a factor too. I do not remember any cars that passed us coming the other way for the whole trip.
Craters of the Moon - Idaho
I just liked this picture because the yellow line and the slight bump of a curve. Taken on the loop road at Craters of the Moon in Idaho.
Hwy 341 - Road into Virgina City NV
