One time I took a road-trip around the 4 corners region with a friend from college. We must have covered well over one thousand miles and we saw a lot for our 7 day investment. One of the highlights was a trip to Monument Valley.
I'm pretty sure I wasn't expecting a site where we'd wander down a gravel path onto the valley floor as we drove past these vistas that were absolutely amazing. It was a warm day, with perfect sunshine in May. I'm not sure that words can capture the dusty, dry air and feeling of serenity and wonder that was experienced on this trip.
