Southwest Road Trip


Join us on the journey...


Southwestern Road Trip Whenever I think of a road trip I think of dazzling ribbons of smooth blacktops shot through with yellow lines stretching out endlessly under unimaginably expansive skies.

I think of towering cliffs of eroded red sandstone and blood red sunsets. I see sharp shadows cast by a piercing sun high in the sky and and sharp cacti. In my mind's eye I see magnificent lizards, scorpions and spiders.

On a road trip I should be so far away from the city that, as I sit back under the stars, I should be able to see far off galaxies and shooting stars. I should be able to see the Milky Way from horizon to horizon.

In fact, when I imagine a road trip, I imagine the southwestern states of America.
