Cool.  I was only with the EF-111s for a year at Mountain Home AFB but I can say with authority that it was a PITA to maintain.

The RAAF had F-111C Aardvarks, they were affectionately nicknamed Pigs https://en.wikipedia...Dynamics_F-111C

 

I loved watching the "Dump and Burn"

While you were in Idaho, did you get a chance to tour any of the surrounding areas?  Took a trip there a few years ago and the geology of Idaho is really nifty.  Craters of the Moon is something I want to go back to.  

 

Also, that whole section of the Snake River Valley was cut by the huge flood caused by Lake Bonneville leaking out to the ocean.  Really cool stuff out there.

Oh yes!  Silver City was one of my favorites (next to Yellowstone).  It was an hours drive AFTER you got off the paved road through the mountains.  Sheer cliff on one side, sheer drop on the other.   You could look down and see vehicles that didn't quite make one of the frequent curves.  I made more than one person p their pants with that drive!

 

The place had about a dozen full time residents with only 4 or 5 who wintered over.  Only snowmobiles could get in and out then.

I'm not familiar with a Silver City near Yellowstone, but it sounds like you might be talking about Silver City Idaho in the Owyhee area of Idaho near the Oregon border.  Me being a high desert girl, that's not horribly close to Yellowstone but I know perspectives change a bit depending on where you are from.  I guess maybe if I were from Boston they'd look like they were right next door. 

 

It's a really neat place and that part of Idaho and Oregon is filled with all sorts of ghost towns and near ghost towns.  My favorites are probably Shaniko (Grandma taught my mom and aunt in the school house there) and Bannack in Montana.

Yes, it's haughty and its arrogant but you're a battleship with 16 inch guns and Britannia Rules the Waves.  Maybe a bit of arrogance in this case is appropriate.

I said it wrong.   LOL  I meant that Yellowstone was my favorite and I was talking about the old west little place in Idaho being next on my list.

Hard to argue about Yellowstone ... hmmmm ...   I'd probably have to say that you're right but my list of honorable mentions would be ... 

 

Arches National Monument - Utah

Redwoods National Park - California

Zion National Park - Utah

Bryce Canyon National Park - Utah

Dinosaur National Monument - Utah

Mesa Verde National Park - Colorado

Carlsbad Caverns National Park - New Mexico

Grand Canyon National Park - Arizona

Yosemite Valley portion of Yosemite National Park - California

 

Next level down but still 5 star worthy in my book.  

 

Flagstaff Hill National Historical Oregon Trail Interpretive Center - Oregon

Fort Stevens State Park - Oregon

Grand Teton National Park - Colorado

Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument - Oregon

Monument Valley Navajo National Park - Arizona/Utah

Mount Rushmore National Memorial - South Dakota

Custer State Park - South Dakota

Devil's Tower - Wyoming

Tuzigoot National Monument - Arizona

Canyon de Chelly National Monument - Arizona

Gilia Cliff Dwellings National Monument - New Mexico

Glacier National Park - Montana

 

Kind of scratches the sites I think are pretty amazing.
