Our Rockies trip started and ended in Portland, which meant crossing over to the Rockies in Washington.
Here are some of the panoramas. The regular photos are not yet categorized.
After leaving Idaho, we went on to Montana and Glacier Park.
Inner Washington is stark, but one striking feature is Dry Falls. Here, long ago, a waterfall much grander than Niagara fell. During the end of the ice age, natural dams and lakes were formed in stages, then released, over thousands of years. (Creationists don't like this area.) During the burst periods, this waterfall raged.
Further up the Grand Coulee is the famous dam, largest in the USA.

Seattle from the north, just after rain.
As we entered Idaho, we went past Lake Pend-Oreille for a pretty sunset.
In the morning, we continued down the Clark Fork river, shrouded in morning mist. From there we went into Montana and then returned to Washington after visits to Alberta and British Columbia.

Highway 20 is spectacular, but most of our trip along it was in the rain. We pulled in on a clear night to capture the western vista.
This is the same shot, wider angle, showing the steep drop and a 360 view.
It was hard rain and mist by the time we reached the visitor center. Still, the trees and mountains in the mist made a shot of interest. Also have this wide angle.
From there we drove all the way in the rain to Eugene, and the Oregon Country Fair.
