We are in the Yellowstone Nation Park area, taking a photography class. During the class, we hiked out to a river area where a good-sized group of elk often visit.
This was the male of the herd, with a couple of dozen females. He is crossing the river, calling to the females to leave this browsing area.

We stopped in here from our rally in Wisconsin Dells. The first time we tried to eat, the place was packed. This at 1 PM, but unfortunately on a Sunday. We returned during the week, and the place was emptier, but we had some trouble with the service.
We DO like Dave's and enjoy the fact that the food is good in all the stores we've tried.

The museum is well worth a visit.

By APS we mean the American Philatelic Society. Their headquarters has one of the finest philatelic (stamp collecting) library in the country, as well as a sales division where collectors can buy items to improve their collections.

We visited this on June 6th, driving from a campground in nearby upstate New York. The museum was great, and certainly brought back many memories of our experiences with baseball.
My favorite was taking a photo of the plaque honoring "Satchel" Paige.

We did some driving around the Bar Harbor area. One day, we tried to drive to Bass Harbor Head and see the lighthouse. During our drive, the weather became increasingly foreboding. Well, here is a huge, black cloud. And it did rain right after this photo was taken.

This area is near Bar Harbor, but is a peninsula in its own right. The rock formations at the ocean are remarkable, and people drive out just to see the waves crashing on the rocks.
We visited this area on our way back from Quoddy Point, where the US and Canada come together at the "top" of Maine.

Taken at the harbor in Bar Harbor, Maine. The cruise ship "Maasdam" was in the harbor, so we drove to town to see the ship. These fishing boats (probably lobster boats) looked quite nice against the fog and nearby islands.

Taken near Jordan Pond, Bar Harbor, Maine. We had a few decent days and did some driving around the Acadia National Park. This "pond" is a glacial lake that is very scenic. The trees near the lake were in their brand new, very very green foliage.

We visited the museum in Groton, Connecticut. Fascinating displays, very patriotic. They have the Nautilus, the first nuclear-powered submarine there, and you can walk (and climb) through it. The large circles you see are the markers for the diameter of the current Ohio-class submarine (larger), and the first US submarine (smaller). The USP truck helps to show the scale of things.

Taken on the Blue Ridge Parkway. We drove our 40-foot motorhome on the Parkway without incident. Of course, there was very little traffic. We might have had a harder time of it in the fall, with all the beautiful leaf color.
We have been "following" the dogwoods up from Florida.
