A Walk Down Memory Lane 13

Pack your bags,we're going on a road trip today.
This Walk Down Memory Lane takes us to various parts of Canada and the US.
The first stop is Colorado and Estes Park.

Here we are at Bear Tooth Pass in Wyoming.

A quick trip takes us to the Golden Gate Bridge in Vancouver,BC.

A mountain view somewhere in BC. A view of the famous Banff Hot Springs Hotel.
Let's stop at an overlook to see a beautiful lake.
Beauty is observed even in winter.
This is Lake Louise in Banff,Alberta.
Another picturesque mountain scene.
These pictures do not need any identification.
Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills of South Dakota is a familiar scene.
Another peek at Bear Tooth Pass.
Now we head south to Whitesands National Monument in New Mexico.
Let's hurry back to Canada,and stop at Bow Falls in Banff.
Back to the US and the Going to the Sun Highway in Montana.
This Weeping Wall was right beside the road.
Another view of the same place.
This scene is taken in Wyoming,exact location not known.
We head next to the Badlands of South Dakota.
Here we stop to look at one of the many glaciers in Alberta.
Still in Banff we come across this scene.
Now we have arrived in Jasper,Alberta.
One of our Royal Canadian Mounted Police,posing for a picture.
A trip up the Jasper Skytram,give a different view of the mountains.
Following two pictures take us to the Flaming Gorge Rec.Area,Utah
the place of this scenic view will remain unknown.
The beauty is still the same.
Finally we spend some time in Yellowstone National Park.
We are just in time to see Old Faithful at it's best.
Obviously these pictures were taken over several years and vacations.
I hope you enjoyed this quick trip all over the country.
Value the beauty of the changing seasons.

Wow - gorgeous shots Ruth! I think I've seen all or at least most of those places in my lifetime. We traveled lots every summer when the kids were young and we sure got around! Thanks that your pictures trigger the memories!

A lovely trip down memory lane for me as well as all our photos went up in smoke from our lovely cross country trip in Canada, from Montreal to Vancouver and down the coast to San Francisco.
Thank you for sharing these.

Ruth what captivating images of your memorable vacation to beautiful mountain scapes! I loved the images of Vancouver and Banff because I lived there for a bit and am very familiar with the country..thank you for taking me down my own memory lane!
Your continued support for me while I walk toward wellness touches me deeply and I am most appreciative. I feel blessed in meeting and connecting with such caring spirits who believe in the power of prayer. blessings to you.

As I scrolled down through all of your beautiful pictures I kept! You have been around...meant in the nicest of ways of course. You have seen the most beautiful mountains, and lakes and snow scenes. God is the maker, sculpter, painter, and creator of such infinite beauty. Praise his name. And Thanks to you for sharing!

Becky said...

Oh my Ruth, thank you for that trip! I'm sure I'll never get to visit any of these in person. What a beautiful contry we have, and how thankful I am we have cameras to preserve all these memories.

Just love going on road trips with you thru your photos! So beautiful. A Weeping Wall? That one was so cool, I had never heard of it! I hope one day I can get my kids out west again. It's so different from here and just so amazingly beautiful. My family drove from Buffalo NY to Wyoming one summer. It was a trip I will always remember. My husband actually drove from Buffalo to Alaska 20 years ago. HE got some great pictures too.

Pat said...

Spectacular scenes, Ruth! You and Jake are quite the travelers!
