Road trips can be fun, with good company, inspiring scenery and cooperative weather. The Southwestern US NEVER disappoints! Below are some highlights.
The thrill of driving route 66 through Tucumcari, New Mexico. Experiencing breathtaking elevation changes through New Mexico and Arizona. The surprise of encountering whimsical tiles and Roman arches in the last rest stop outside Albuquerque. Experiencing the charm of a "tree spirit" in Old Town, Albuquerque. The comfort of visiting with friends' pets while away from my own dear boy.. The wonder of seeing a pomegranate bush for the first time. Seeing the majesty of the sculptural flora of Arizona. Appreciating the endless creativity of residential gates, fences and murals in Phoenix. Beauty, creativity and ingenuity are alive and well and everywhere you look.
