Day eight

The day stared with a nice bruch near a lake, we had lunch from our cooler (sandwiches) and a great view to boot!

The road leading into the Rocky Mountains had a waterfall where we stopped for some photos.

This part of the route is the same as last year. My travel buddy this time hadn't seen any of the parks yet (well he hadn't been to the USA yet, so he hadn't seen anything).

While the must-do parks were mostly the same, this trip did "split off" from the beaten path and we did some other things as well.

I didn't really mind visiting the parks again and since I was the "tour leader" it's nice to have a few spots where you already know how to get there and how long things take.

Time for some lunch at a bar/diner. A BLT with french fries.

The views were just as amazing as last year.

This was also the last day we did not venture from the viewpoints.

On the other side of the mountains we followed this stream to our next destination
