Entrance to Yellowstone

West entrance to Yellowstone has the most interesting wolf and grizzly center. If you are coming in to the park from the west, this is a "must see" the rescue animals are here. This includes nuisance bears taken out of residential areas or "accused" of eating livestock, and animals hit by cars or trucks that need rehabilitation. There are also a lot of hawks and owls that are being rehabilatated here. Anyway, don't miss it.

Craters of the Moon

Craters of the Moon National Monument in Idaho is facinating from an archeological standpoint, or just plain ugly from a non interested standpoint. It looks a lot like a dumping ground for all of the world's torn up asphalt. Very strange and interesting volcanic wasteland. It is located just outside of the town of Arco. Arco holds the distinction of being the first town in the world to receive all of it's electricity from a nuclear powerplant. (Still nothing else there)...

Maryhill, Washington

Maryhill Washington is a beautiful area! Unfortunately, there is absolutely nothing here but a few farms, vineyards, windfarms, hydroelectric dams, and the barges and trainyards. The campground was beautiful, with the largest spaces we have ever encountered, but besides fishing, there wasn't anything to keep our interest. The truckstop at the exit was the only source of groceries, and a replica of stonehenge (built by Sam Hill as a monument to fallen soldiers from the area) was the only real point of interest and takes 15 minutes to tour... Between the exhaust brakes on the trucks coming down the steep hill behind the campground and the constant presence of trains, there is no peace and quiet...ever. Onward to more interesting places.
