Don't miss it...

Float trip through the Tetons is most memorable (So Far)
Wildlife and sights were excellent. (silently sneaking up on wildlife)

Both routes, 14 and 14A are great. If you go 14, it's worth a quick side trip up to the top of the pass on 14A; it's really that spectacular.
14A without a doubt. they don't call it the "Oh my God" Highway for nothing.

Road to Yellowstone

You have missed dozens and dozens of spectacular places.

One of my all time favorites was a Harley ride through Yellowstone and the Tetons. Then across Wyoming (Daniel WY is special) and western CO.

Tanzania vacation was a favourite vacation of my life. Those who are adventure lover and nature lover they will surely love to visit African safari which will satisfy anyone’s who have a sense of adventure. Safaris have always been amazing and to feel a quiet park that resides in the north of Tanzania in East Africa you must come to the National Park of Tarangire. It looks lovely and is quite renowned for its authentic atmosphere, birding and migration of the elephants. Recently I had visited there with trip advisor https://www.tripadvisor.in/Attractio...ro_Region.html

Hiking in Denali, past the end of the road. Spectacularly beautiful!
Beartooth highway. Amazing scenery.
Traveling around Alaska on the Alaska Railroad. So much fun!
Saő Miguel, Faial and Pico in the Azores. So diverse and varied, from emerald green calderas to stark basalt and lava-rocked seashores to almost lunar landscapes.

I've taken only a few "vacations" in my life, usually having to quit my job in order to travel, and that would be open ended.

But in 1970, I had a three week vacation in Canada (where workers get vacations), and decided to go overland to Timbuctoo. RT ticket to Canary Islands. Visa there for Mauritania. Flight to Nouakchott, then truck to Dakar. Side trip there to Gambia while waiting for visas to Burkina Faso and Malii. Horrendous 45-hour train rise on wooden bench seats Dakar to Bamako. Hitchhike to Boio Dioulassl. Adother truck to Mopti, Mali. Got up the next morning to take river boat down to Timbuctoo, but was told that during the night, a cholera quarantine had been imposed on Mopti, and the boat would not stop to board passengers. Spent three absolutely lovely days in amazing Mopti finally talking officials into letting me out through the quarantine point, since I had a vaccination card. By truck back to Bamako (too late now for Timbuctoo), and repeat train ride, other direction. In Bamako, rebooked my ticket to fly direct from Dakar to Canaries, bypassing the return through Mauritania. I got home in time to go to work Monday morning.

Of course, in those days, there was no internet, not even Lonely Planet. The closest thing to a guide book of Africa was the Michelin map. Everything by word of mouth. Plan your flights by begging last month's OAG off a friendly travel agent. But today, nearly the whole trip would be next to impossible. No more flights from Canaries to Africa. Borders highly problematic. Mali in civil war. Incredibly, last year on a train in Thailand, I met a German who had made a similar trip at about the same time.

Being told Maimi isn't a walkable city. I spent 7 days walking the county. 30 miles a day, for 7 days. I burned over 2000 calories a day and maybe took in like 1300 a day. Drank plenty of water, barely slept, and used my phone literally 4 times that week. Amazing experience to me. Tell me I can't do something I try and find ways to do such thing!

This may sound crazy but one of our best vacations was a weekend spent camping about 30 miles from home. We set up our tent at Hillman Ferry Campground in the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area in western Kentucky www.landbetweenthelakes.us

Our campsite was about 15 feet from the edge of Kentucky Lake, the largest man made lake (by acreage) east of the Mississippi River. We had a nice shady spot for our lawn chairs and we were happy.

If you like hiking and biking, the Land Between the Lakes is 170,000 acres of land with no businesses or homes. Just hiking, biking, camping, fishing and other outdoor activities

My DH and I took a 3 1/2 week vacation out west. We went as far north as Yellowstone and south to the Grand Canyon. We saw a lot, but we missed a lot too. I'd love to do it again!

Galapagos by far was my favorite trip. Four different islands plus a little time on the Ecuadorian mainland. The wildlife on the islands is unforgettable.
