Mesa Verde National Park.

Translated from Spanish as “green table”, Mesa Verde National Park is very appropriately named. The “green table” for which it’s named is prominent from the start, appearing very shortly once you pass the entrance. One of the first things I remarked upon on after entering was the full, lush greenery that encased the mountains, surrounding us like …

Vermont: The Green Mountain State. 💚

During my 16-state, 2018 East Coast road trip, the only state that truly blew me away was Vermont 😍. It'd be safe to say that I fan-girled hard over it. It’s so beautiful! It remained “the most beautiful state I've visited so far” until Montana and the Idaho panhandle stole the title in 2020. It’s …

Montana: The Most Beautiful State in America.

While Sedona is still one of my favorite places ever, Montana is hands down my absolute favorite state in the whole country. I had seen photos of this gorgeous state for years, only being able to picture it in my head. So, being able to finally visit it, and by car (the best way to …

“3 Corners”: Stand in Three States at One Time!

The “4 Corners’” lesser known, less popular cousin, I didn’t even know the “3 Corners” existed until this year (2021). Almost everyone knows about the “4 Corners” in the Southwest, but few know about the three states that meet in the Midwest. I had never heard of it until I researched things to do for …

Grafton, Utah: “The most photographed ghost town in the West”.

The expansive Utahan desert, right outside of Grafton. Tucked down a bumpy, 3-mile partial dirt road, sits a little known and extremely cool ghost town. Located in the southwestern corner of Utah, not a soul lives in this completely deserted place, which is probably very creepy at night (there are ranch homes nearby, but nobody …

Considered to be a holy grail for ghost hunting in paranormal circles, the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum is as haunted as it is historic.

Cadillac Ranch: The Stonehenge of Texas.

An iconic roadside stop just outside of Amarillo, Texas, Cadillac Ranch is worth the stop. We visited during our 2021 cross-country road trip, but I’ve passed by this place two times prior. I wasn’t going to miss it a third time! For those unaware of what the heck a “Cadillac Ranch” is, it’s more or …
