Berty made a few panoramas at the different areas that they stopped at it. With his camera he would take about 12 pictures of the scene from left to right, making sure to overlap them by around 20% or so. He then used Photoshop to stitch together the photos to make one giant panorama.

Most of the photos below are also in the Day by Day section of this site. To see the panorama, click on the photo.

Snake River Gorge

View of Snake River Gorge

We stopped at Twin Falls, Idaho, on Day One. When we arrived there we were pleasantly surprised to a see the unbelievably gorgeous Snake River valley gorge about a half a mile from our hotel.

Shoshone Falls

Shoshone Falls, Idaho

The College of Southern Idaho wrote some good stuff about the Shoshone Falls on their web site:

“Thousands of people travel to Shoshone Falls each year to marvel at a sight many call "the Niagra of the West". In fact, Shoshone Falls tumble 212 feet to the canyon floor -- more than 50 feet farther than the famous falls on the New York - Ontario border. The waterfall's terraced thousand-foot span is truly one of Idaho's most magnificent sites.”

Loaf Mountain Overlook

Mt. Loaf scenic lookout

From Wikipedia: The Cloud Peak Wilderness is located in north central Wyoming in the United States. Entirely within Bighorn National Forest, the wilderness was established in 1984 in an effort to preserve the wildest section of the Bighorn Mountains. The wilderness has the highest peaks in the Bighorn Mountains including Cloud Peak and Black Tooth Mountain, as well as Cloud Peak Glacier, the only remaining active glacier in the Bighorn Mountains.

This scenic overlook is on the way down from the Powder River Pass on Route 16. In the distance (if you click on the image and pull up the panorama) you can see, from the left to right, Loaf Mountain, elevation 11,722 feet, Bighorn Peak, elevation 12,324 feet, and Darton Peak, elevation 12,275 feet.

Badlands National Park

The Badlands, South Dakota

From Wikipedia: Badlands National Park, in southwest South Dakota, United States preserves 242,756 acres of sharply eroded buttes, pinnacles and spires blended with the largest protected mixed grass prairie in the United States.

This photo was taken at the first scenic overlook and is really only half of the vista that you would see there.

Badlands National Park – 2

The Badlands, South Dakota

Badlands National Park is located in the White River Badlands and was called mako sica (mako, land and sica, bad) by the Sioux Indians. The term badlands generally refers to an area that is difficult to travel through primarily because of the rugged terrain and lack of water. The fascinating landscape within the park erodes at a rate of about 1 inch per year, providing an ever-changing landscape.

This photo was taken near the third scenic overlook and shows some of the yellowish ground in the lower areas of the park.
