Thursday was our longest driving day of the summer. 10 hours in the back seat isn’t too bad, but I imagine driving it was rather difficult. So as to alleviate the discomfort that goes hand in hand with such expansive drives, we made a few very important pit stops, specifically in Idaho and Utah. Among these was the National Oregon California Trail Center. Seeing as the animals at Yellowstone (I’ll post about that later – too many pictures/notions, too few bars of cell service) were too reclusive and/or deadly to take any selfies, these startlingly lifelike REAL animals sufficed. Here we have a bison, a bear, an elk, and some other identifiable western landmarks: the wagon and the teepee.
