When we lived in the Seattle area for several years, I learned why they call it the Emerald City. It rains! The grass is always green! And the city boasts some 6000 park acres.

Seven grandchildren, seven adults, a fiftieth wedding anniversary, and Dixieland Jazz; what more could my husband and I ask for a family cruise? Even though this is our third Alaskan trip, we lucked out to find it a fit with all fourteen members’ schedules. Of course, they make it fit when Mom and Dad provide an all-inclusive party for their first cruise! It will be special in many ways. We leave Seattle June 28, and return July 5. We plan to make reservations for dinner atop the Space Needle the night before we board.

Two routes take you to Yellowstone National Park, I-25 or Highway 287. Both present tourist attractions. We’ve already covered the detour to Fort Laramie, so we’ll go straight to Douglas via I-25 north.

Yes, Yellowstone and the Grand Teton Mountains are probably the most well known destinations in Wyoming. However, there are other smaller interesting tourist attractions. We travel I-80 often in route to Salt Lake City to see grandchildren but seldom go north on I-25.
Today I’ll give you ideas for two-day trips along those routes.

I dreamed of visiting many places after graduation, the Rocky Mountain’s tree line, twin cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul, the Great Salt Lake, Arizona’s desert, and both oceans to name a few.
Now, I’ve seen them all and more. Tears filled my eyes at my first glimpse of the mountains when I neared Denver. I’d never seen anything so close to Heaven. On our first trip to my Minnesotan husband’s hometown, he laughed when I asked if a huge lake were manmade like
