Roadtrip Photos, the Last Batch

Been home for like 10 days, but I want to round out the trip with these puppies (for more on the journey, check out my Roadtrip Updates #1, #2, and #3, (#4 to be posted Thurs.)):

Crater Lake National Park, OR. Get there before 8:30AM and it's mirror-still.



Unexpected alpinism in Mt. Rainier National Park



Things get flat and scrubby dry around the Washington-Idaho border.
This was taken in Lewiston, ID, across the Snake-Clearwater confluence from Clarkston, WA.




Burned trees, Yellowstone National Park. These and many more were killed in the fires of 1988.
Which, coincidentally, was the last time I was at the park.




Lower Yellowstone Falls. Check the tiny peoples.



Grand Prismatic Spring, Yellowstone NP



Grand Tetons. Last noteworthy shot of the trip.

Thanks, Julie. Yellowstone is incredible, but it wasn't even my favorite park. Rainier kinda blew me away.

Damn, Hal. Your photos are always so good. My only complaint is that they should be 4x the size so I don't have to steam up my screen to get a good look.

Thanks Kate! Yeah, I need to figure out a good "photo essay" format on Blogger. Or, um, switch to WP like the rest of the world.
