Escaping the cold wet Northwest winter we ventured south to the cold, but at least mostly dry, Southwest. The loop took us through Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico and Utah, through beautiful deserts and incredible sites. It was definitely colder than California, the coldest night was -3° (-19C), but we had very little rain which was great.

Our goal to visit all 400+ National Park Service sites lead us also to follow much of the ancestral migration of the Ancient Puebloan Peoples. Beautiful sites, fantastic scenery, and great exploration filled our days.

You can enjoy our journey as you browse our pictures and the stories that go with them.
