Go West

I kinda want to take a road trip. I’ve never spent much time in the Western part of the US. I think I might like it.

I want to go to the Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, TX.

I think the Neon Museum in Vegas would be amazing.

How cool would it be to tour an airplane bone yard in Arizona?

I imagine there are any number of fabulous things I could see. I’m curious if desert air would be good for me. But mostly I wonder if this is an idea that only seems good in my head. Would I just end up annoyed stuck in my Subaru on a highway in the middle of nowhere? I don’t know. But this stuff looks pretty cool in photographs. I think I’d like to see it in person.

  1. If you go, you must put a stop in Taos and Santa Fe NM on the top of the list. I swear it is one of the most magical places on the planet.

  2. I took a road trip when I was a kid with my family from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon and Antelope Canyon. It was a LOT of driving through a barren but beautiful landscape. Worth it, I think!

  3. Cadillac Ranch is on my list, too, and I’ve sometimes wondered if I’ll get there and be underwhelmed. But when’s the last time you truly regretted seeing/doing something new? Go for it.

  4. I went on a spring break trip to New Mexico one year and got a lot out of it. The landscape is incredibly different from what we’re so used to here. Mountains, scrub desert, white sands. Gives your brain a whole new experience to process, which it will enjoy and thank you for. Not to mention the food. New Mex-Mex (“red or green?”) is so much better than Tex-Mex, your stomach will thank you too. Don’t know about your gut, of course.

  5. We have done the road trip to the Grand Canyon a couple of times. We usually include stops in Santa Fe, NM; The Painted Desert, AZ; Bryce Canyon, UT; and Mesa Verde, CO. So many neat things to see in that area. However, my absolute favorite National Park is Glacier National Park in Montana. Not the desert, but I promise you won’t be sorry you went. The most gorgeous place I have ever seen. “Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.” ~ John Muir
