I always loved staring out the car window in the back seat on those long summer road trips through the desert southwest.
We are all Travelers. We seek what is true and we push past what we know to be false. The question is: where do we go? What place is true and good and real? Where is the place that will speak to us, crystal clear, in a voice that is familiar and kind? Where is true found… and false forgotten? Where? Here is a good place to start. Our venturesome travelers, beaming with adventurous spirits and a thirst for authenticity, chronicle their explorations and ideas, trekking to what is true and discovering the unexpected.
As a New Mexican, I love travelling new roads and getting in to the nooks and crannies of the lesser-known attractions of our state.Fueled by the sun, haunted by waters, I always say.Recently a colleague and I had the chance to visit the Ice Cave and Bandera Volcano near Grants, and it was a treat.
Ask anyone who’s taken a national parks road trip and, trust me; they’ll agree that by the time you get to the desert regions, you’re just looking for a pool.
