Anyway, there's supposed to be a sci-fi element to this post and I'll provide it right now. During our vacation, I brought with me a tall and fascinating alien life form. Her skin tone is blue, but at the same time she is surprisingly green. A big nature person, she was just dying to enter all the middle-of-nowheres national parks so she could describe them to her god when she returns to Pandora.
First stop: Zion Canyon.
Fast forward 2 or 3 fake national parks. Here's one of the cooler (by no means using the old definition) parts of Yellowstone. Oh, by the way, she's posing as an archer in this image. She'd be holding her bow and arrow if she hadn't lost them at a G-rated McDonalds.

Then she was truly astounded by the 4 legged fauna at the National Bison Range. I tried to explain to her that Earth mammals don't have queues. If you mess with the bull, you're gonna get the horns!
Finally, we arrived at Grandma and Grandpa's house in Spokane. Their backyard almost qualifies as a "national park".
