It’s amazing how the landscape changes as one drives across country. God knows why I ever even considered flying. Thank you, major airlines, for banning pit bulls. Otherwise, we might have missed out on this unbelievable scenery.

Time for a photo opportunity.

This is one hell of a dog-inclusive road trip vehicle, by the way. We removed the back seats to make room for the luggage.

Look, critter poop.

And cactus.

I guess we’re not in Chicago anymore.

Approaching Jackson Hole.
