What a wonderful collection of photos from your trips! That’s such a great idea for the Blogging from A to Z Challenge.
Boring is a classic. It’s the blue herons that fascinate me, Would go well with my British rivers – http://bit.ly/2uELPcn
I love to drag my family to quirky places when we travel. These all look like fun spots to stop! We’ve been to Brazos Bend and we’re pretty sure we would be eaten by a gator. They were everywhere!
What a great assortment of Bs! The Badlands was one of my favorite places to camp this past summer. Waking up to Bison a couple feet from your tent was pretty awesome! Also, the number of bison in Yellowstone was awesome.
I watched a show on Netflix that took place in Boring, OR. I think it was “Everything Sucks” It was a good show.

After we saw some bison at Yellowstone, we stopped for lunch at one of the park restaurants. I was going to order a bison burger, but my wife insisted that I shouldn’t. Reluctantly I went for the healthier choice of a salad, but still my mouth was watering thinking about that bison burger.

Ted Turner raises Giant herds of bison specifically for bison burgers and steaks on his Dell, Montana ranch
I love a “less beaten path.” I also have a strange penchant for visiting towns and cities with cool and unusual names. “Boring, Oregon” is now on my list! I’ve stopped by from the #AtoZChallenge Road Trip (and am glad that I did).
OMG, Stopping by from the #AtoZChallenge Road Trip. Glad I found you after the fact. What a hoot!
