Our Latest Road Trip: SouthWest United States

Our road trip started May 1 so you might be wondering why the posts aren't showing up until now. As my policy, I never write about a trip before we leave or while we are gone from the house. Just my own personal thing about not advertising to the world that our house will be empty.

Anyway, we left western NY around 8:30 that morning and, driving through some rain and lots of clouds, we made it to Cincinnati, OH for the night. It was a bit over 500 miles but our car is extremely comfortable and we had no problem doing the mileage.

Our itinerary eventually took us down the Natchez Trace to Jackson, MS, then turned west through Vicksburg, MS, across Texas through Dallas/Fort Worth, into southern New Mexico, then southern Arizona to Tucson. From there we turned north through Phoenix, to the Grand Canyon and then east to Monument Valley and the San Juan Mountains of southwest Colorado. South into northern New Mexico to visit Sante Fe and Taos before we headed to the Philadelphia, PA area to visit with our grandchildren.

Hope you enjoy coming along for the ride and reading my posts.
