Q: Why am I not given the option to nominate a person for member of the week?

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

This year, I drove to Grand Tetons National Park via U.S. 287/26 from Rawlins to Moran Junction. And then I turned right onto U.S. 191, and drove north to Yellowstone National Park. Yes, THAT U.S. 191, the same federal highway that connects Moab and Bluff, Utah on the way to Monument Valley, one of the most spectacular highways in the Southwest. But, I digress. Here, we are in the Northwest

On the way to Moran Junction, I drove through Dubois (pronounced DU-boys), and for the next 75 miles I enjoyed the panoramic view that President Theodore Roosevelt said "bankrupted the English language." It really does defy description.

From this POV, I have not yet reached Moran Junction. Looking westerly, this was the perfect place to see the highest peaks in the Tetons, although on this morning they were above the clouds. But, even so, I would not disagree with President Roosevelt.

The wonder of photography: As I uploaded this photo, more than two months after taking it, I realized that someone was in the picture! Until tonight, I had not seen her.

As always, thank you for stopping by!
