In 2002, Sandy and I along with our friends Dean and Charlottel Campbell made a roadtrip to Yellowstone National Park. We rented a minivan so that we could make the trip in one car only and have enough room for all of our luggage for the trip.

We drove from home in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. We stopped the first night in a little town named Raton, just inside New Mexico.

We stopped in the Colorado Springs, Colorado to see a few of the local tourist sites in that area.

The second night we were in Cheyenne, WY. From there we entered South Dakota where we visited the Crazy Horse Monument project, which is still under construction. Then on to see the Mt. Rushmore Monument.

Re-entering Wyoming on our way to Yellowstone we saw Devil's Tower Monument. Other sights seen on the way until we reached Cody, Wyoming where we based our stay while visiting Yellowstone National Park. Contact Me.


The camera equipment used on this trip was the Canon EOS 630 35mm film SLR.. Also used was a Canon Sure Shot A1 waterproof 35mm film camera.
I welcome comments and questions.

collectible dolls for sale

We sell collectible dolls and have one of the, if not the largest collection of hard to find reitred collectible dolls anywhere. Our listings consist of dolls of a wide variety of well known and loved names.

At the little motel we stayed the night in. Nothing fancy but clean and comfortable. After all, we were just there to get a good night's sleep before continuing on our journey. Out on the lawn in front of the motel, a comfy swing which was just too much to resist. Not that we had a lot of time to spend out there but at least enough time for a photo or two. Dean and Charlotte took their turn at the swing. I don't recall how we found this little road or what possessed us to even be on it. Perhaps we saw it coming and going from wherever we had dinner that night.
The next moring we're on our way north on I-25 headed through Colorado. I don't recall what it was attractive off the side of the highway but it was apparently enough to warrant stopping for a look and some pictures.

In the Colorado Springs area we visited Royal Gorge. Sandy and I had been there a couple of times before (we had spent our honeymoon there many years ago) and we did take the little train tour around the gorge area.

A couple of shots of Royal Gorge. Note the suspension bridge spanning the gorge.

Next we visited the Seven Falls site in the area. Again, Sandy and I had been there before but this was the first time for Dean and Charlotte.

At Seven Falls. Colorado Springs, Colorado. After we left Colorado our second night was in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Though our trip was to take us to Yellowstone as our primary destination, we had planned a detour en route. Crazy Horse Monument is located in the Black Hills area of South Dakota. The monument is still under construction.
