"As I was walking that ribbon of highway,
I saw above me that endless skyway:
I saw below me that golden valley:
This land was made for you and me.

I've roamed and rambled and I followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts;
And all around me a voice was sounding:
This land was made for you and me.

When the sun came shining, and I was strolling,
And the wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling,
As the fog was lifting a voice was chanting:
This land was made for you and me."
-Woody Guthrie

A road trip thru the Southwest.

I have always wanted to travel through the Southwest to take in the many different types of scenery.  Starting in Taos, NM and ending in Moab, UT, this was a "3900 miles in 10 days" trip.

Visiting historical sites and a volcano field in New Mexico, then travelling down old Route 66 to Flagstaff, we took in the Petrified Forest, Grand Canyon, then most of the National Parks throughout Utah including Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, Arches, and Canyonlands.

The most notable thing on this trip was how the sunlight hits the formations throughout the day, it is never quite the same view from any viewpoint as the sun passes over.  The colors of the formations made for some interesting pictures.

While I have always been fond of mountains and coastline, the Southwest definitely holds a new candle.
