Thank you for your patience while we retrieve your images.

Over my adult life, including 25 years spent in uniform, I have traveled extensively around the U.S. and have lived or been stationed in eight states and the District of Columbia. I have visited many places across the remainder of the country. Somehow, with all that traveling about, I’ve never managed to see the highlights of the Northwest, and never visited Idaho, Montana, or Wyoming at all. Thanks to another well-planned trip put together by my good friend, Dr. Mike Pratt, I got to cross some places off the “never been there” list. Yellowstone and Devils Tower were the big highlights of the trip for me, and I hope this will not be the only time I get to visit.
