Trip to Jackson, Wyoming

The week of July 4th, 2012, I went to my family reunion at the Grand Teton National Park. I had a fantastic time shooting pictures while en route. I camped for a week and thoroughly enjoyed visiting and hiking with relatives I hadn't seen for many years. Here are a few pictures from the trip. http:/...

It's marked "a 'country cousin' original, hand screened, lake placid, new york".

Thanks, Sky! The In & Out in Baker City is completely unrelated to your chain down there. I do miss eating at In-N-Out in Henderson. We've got some great burger places around here, though. The Boise Fry Company is my favorite.

Trip to Baker City, Oregon

I took a little road trip on Old Highway 30 (Oregon Trail) a few weeks ago and found some great signage in Baker City, Oregon. I also hit the Crazy Days Car Show in La Grande, but the place was so crowded I decided to head back to Baker City and do some more exploring. Here are a few pictures I took...
