The Smithsonian's Air & Space Museum Annex at Washington's Dulles Airport is not to be missed. Even the outside of the building makes a terrific statement at this end of day shot, taken just from outside the car. With barely time for that, I was lucky again to get just enough sunshine. From the tower at left, visitors can learn about how air traffic control works while they take in the view of arrivals and departures at the foot of the runway!
Wintry reflection on the Missouri River, downtown Omaha. Gallup University Campus.
Omaha's transitioning itself with a new walkway bridge to Iowa and bronze sculptures. The Gallup University Campus is just behind the bridge along the Missouri River.
Our first visit to Mt Rushmore was amazing. Nothing prepares you for the actual view. And I heartedly recommend you take in the early morning (sunrise, if possible) view. It is not to be missed. Many visitors from around the world come to see this!
At the Powder River Basin in Wyoming, these open-range sheep take in a bit of jog as they rush to catch up to their friends.
When you get to go to Mt Rushmore, Treat yourself to an extra day's tour of the scenic by-ways surrounding it. This unexpected view is at Sylvan lake. Someone was about to get married at this scenic location!
A trip to Chicago should include an architectural tour by boat. Along the way, we caught the Merchandise Mart's unmistakable size and design. This is one very large venue!
A special moment captured.
And there is the portrait!
Capturing the moment
Canyon Lands National Park, Utah. Our trip to the park produced some memorably magnificent moments!
A sort of 'main attraction' at the Canyonlands National Park, Utah. Here, you almost 'step off' into the canyon along this terrific rim walk. If you are apprehensive about heights, you will feel challenged, but the results may be worth it.
Out of Moab, Utah, a view from just inside the entrance to Arches National Park (at lower right). The weather is ultimately unpredictable as nature serves up an overcast morning. Minutes later, some breathtaking views were available as the sun made its way through long enough for some nicely lit scenes. The mighty Union Pacific railroad courses the hills in the distance almost half way up the ridge.
