It has been hot so not stopping as often and when I do I’m using my camera and not my iPhone often.

Today was a hot day on blacktop going across the high desert of Idaho and Utah. Not a lot of stops but did enjoy the Golden Spike National Park.

On the way to the park was this interesting display of rockets.

I'm home from my 5000 mile trip. I stayed pretty true to the Lewis And Clark's route to the Ocean. From KC to Idaho I was off blacktop more than being on blacktop. In Washington and Oregon it was the opposite.

On my way home I was mostly on State and Interstate highways because of family commitments.

At the Great Fall's of the Missouri I saw this unique site:
