I have made several trips over the years to the Southwest. I have to say it’s my overall favorite place anywhere I have visited so far. There is something about the vastness largely devoid of man’s footprint that I find compelling.


I did a road trip to the south rim of the Grand Canyon while I was living in Colorado in the 1990s. More recently we visited the north rim on Excellent Adventure 2021.


The first time I drove into Utah at Moab I was stunned at how far you could see. The rock formations are indescribable. Raw nature on display. Truly nowhere else like it.
