I am excited to be publishing my 3rd itinerary! It’s difficult to think of just one word that sums up the places we saw in the Southwest… perhaps Vast. Timeless. Humbling. Beautiful.
I will never forget the rock formations of the Chiricahuas which seem forgotten by time and society, but are waiting to amaze you, strewn out in the middle of a lonely desert; or when we ran wild across the endless stretches of dunes at White Sands -a breathtaking, other-worldly experience; and swimming in the hot springs at Big Bend, watching the vast night sky with more stars than we thought possible rotating around us. It was a simultaneously humbling and exhilarating experience. Watching the hatchling sea turtles released on the shores of Padre Island at dawn was such an inspiring statement of hope, and somehow you walk away from it with more faith in life. The Johnson Space Center of Houston reminds you of how far we have travelled, and walking the ruins of Pecos and Bandelier in northern New Mexico reminds you of how very long we have been travelling. And the Grand Canyon, a place where you can watch millions of years pass by in a single moment of time. It almost takes your breath away.
You can find and download this itinerary here by clicking on the Itinerary #3 Heading. I hope you find as much enjoyment and inspiration from this trip as we did. And no matter where you are planning to go this summer, I hope you are indeed making plans to travel.
