Gosh, I'd love to do another road trip. Apart from Seattle, the most memorable one for me was in Namibia from Windhoek, the capital, north through the Namib desert to the Etosha Pan and further. Quite wonderful, and more examples of big sky vistas.
I am rather pleased with the shot above with the barn in the foreground.
Yes it's superb but for sheer scenery the shot below is even better I think - amazing dynamic range. The way it holds the details of trees in foreground, sky and mountains in background is just stunning. I love those little lens flares too ...

Update on the Yogi Situation: The previous evening to all this, we were driving very slowly down a quiet dirt track at the foot of the mountains at dusk and chanced to see the backside of a Brown bear disappearing behind a bush. Beyond that, there was a patch of extremely dense undergrowth, so he melted away very quickly. No chance for a photo and, as it was so close (between 10 and 15 metres) I wasn't getting out of the car to investigate!
After a lunch in the woods by the side of the lake (spent somewhat nervously scouring the bush in the peripheral vision), we moved off towards the mighty Yellowstone.
