I am sure that most people will agree that the American west is an amazing place to visit for the scenery alone.

Yosemite National Park is one of my favorite.

Lol, I can remember everyone telling YOU that. Do you still think of it as being "drab green"?

Gosh, if you had more time, you could've checked out the Hoh rainforest. Well, actually there's a lot of places to check out. Glad to hear you enjoyed the trip.

Lol yes...I mean, the majority of the West is quite yellow/brown. But the PNW has it's fair share of greenery too! Even this one section along I-84 near La Grande had lots of nice greenery and I LOVED it. Too bad there's no high paying jobs there.

I love the West as well. I feel like I belong there. One day...

Now I have to head back east to miserable Fairfield County, Connecticut.
Connecticut is a great state to live in despite the cold.

It is also one of the top wealthiest states in the nation, for those who can hack it there that is.
