Leavin’ On a Road Trip

Bob and I are heading out on a 2+ week road trip to Arizona. I know some people dread being couped up in a car for even 100 miles but a road trip is my favorite way to travel. My best childhood travel memories were the times we would get in the car on Friday night, back out of the Illinois driveway, take turns driving through the night and be in Colorado by noon the next day. We knew where to get a burger in eastern Kansas at three in the morning or buy a smoked ham in Marysville. After sixteen hours we’d see the Rockies piercing the horizon.

I hope to keep readers posted as we travel through New Mexico and explore the Arizona desert. Come back daily for a new adventure. We plan to visit:
