@sk33tr, You will never regret going if you do go. I will say the only negative of either place is the the hoards of people at certain times of the year. If you do decide to visit any NP, do some research on the less crowded times of the year to go.

yeah, i watched a video not too long ago on what to do, what to see, and when to go if you're planning a trip to yellowstone.

@sk33tr, If you have never been out west, there are truly hundreds of eye opening places in many states. Have you been to the Smoky Mountains? Well, imho, they are like mole hills compared to the Rocky Mountains. North of Denver is Rocky Mountain NP, the first NP I ever visited, in 1984 I was 28 years old and was blown away by the grandeur of that park and the mountains. Estes Park is a gateway town , similar to Gatlinburg, and is an entrance to the park. It was very eye opening to this Alabama country bumpkin. Northwest of there is Grand Teton NP which is spectacular itself. About an hour north of GTNP is Yellowstone.That drive through Wy., from Dubois on up to GTNP and to Yellowstone is spectacular. The Grand Canyon is peculiar but mind bogeling at the same time. It was hard for my brain to make any sense of that place. Pictures do it no justice. It's like taking a picture of a grain of sand on the beach, practically. If you go, go to the South Rim. There is not much to see and do at the North Rim. It is something like 20 miles across from one side of the Rim to the other, but to get from one to the other, you have to drive something like 250 miles around the length of the Canyon. In southern Utah, there is Bryce Canyon NP, Zion NP, Canyonlands NP and Arches NP. Zion was one of my favorites, though small and over crowded. There is a video on the tube of a drive through, highway 26 I think, through Springdale in Zion NP, that will give you a taste of the unworldly scenery.

i moved out to oregon/washington (and central california for a few months) back in 1999-2003. the 2 things i remember the most are how flat nebraska and wyoming are (and the wind....WOW!). then, driving over the continental divide was pretty cool and seeing those mountains reaching way up into the sky.

another one is driving through the columbia river gorge....beautiful drive that pretty much just follows the river across oregon.

Good stuff, had some last night! It would be even better of a bowl of rice.

So I'm on Walmart.com looking to see if it's cheaper in larger quantities and look at their price per oz on single vs the best value 4 pack. LOL!

Gotta make that a priority, both are worth seeing! There is lots of cool stuff in between too!

Echoing what @footballer said, so much to see out west. I'm a bit partial to Montana, Colorado is amazing and I love that they promote off-roading they way the do with their public lands. Numerous 12,000'+ peaks to drive up. It's stunning!

Utah is the same way with off-roading on their public lands. All the parks that @football mentioned in Utah and don't forget Moab, which is absolutely gorgeous.

If you visit Yellowstone, then I'd suggest you fit in Glacier as well.

Hopefully one of these days my wife and I get to tour the US for a year in a skoolie. #DreamTrip I want to spend a month in Alaska.

The San Juans in Southern Colorado, small towns like Silverton, Ouray, Telluride surrounded by 12k mountains.

Picture below is from 2017.

my dream trip is to buy a motorhome ( a nice one), travel the country, and spend 1 week in each state. i'd like to go see each state capitol building, and some of the lesser-known attractions in each state.

So I'm on Walmart.com
Are they going to deliver?

I noticed Walmart was expanding their delivery services 1 June of this year: next day delivery, free. In some areas that's a game changer. I know I won't be picking up a bag of dog food anymore. The next time I buy bottled water, 8 cases. Beer, two cases (assuming they'll be able to deliver beer.)

Roanoke, Alabama.

11407In the summer of 1980, a lightning storm struck the building, and the resulting fire burned the theater to the ground. What was showing the night it was hit? Friday the 13th!

Today it does all type of show and community type of stuff.

Make it happen! Only one life - set a goal and work the plan, otherwise it will stay a dream forever. (hopefully that didn't come off too preachy...)
