This 1960 home movie captures the Riley family vacation across the western United States and Canada. This segment documents stops in Washington, the Canadian Rocky Mountains, Montana, Yellowstone National Park, Colorado, and Captiol Reef National Park. Picking up their adventure in Washington, the Rileys visit the Grand Coulee Dam. Crossing the border into Canada, the family explores the Canadian Rockies at Banff National Park. There, they go horseback riding and snowmobiling. Back in the states, the Rileys visit the Montana State Capitol in Helena before heading to Yellowstone National Park. After more horseback trail rides, they marvel at the park’s famed geyers, including Old Faithful. From there, the Rileys swing by the Colorado State Capitol in Denver before concluding their vacation in Capitol Reef National Park in Utah.
