Hovenweep National Monument is a bit out of the way but one of the places I had on my list to see someday. After getting down the road a bit and getting off the beaten track, you'll arrive at the site that is just 25 miles straight north of the four corners (as the crow flies), where CO, UT, AZ and NM meet, but it takes a good map and some understo...

Then about a hundred and some miles down the road is the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument area. Adding just a few more miles after that t...

The World War II Manzanar Japanese Refugee Camp is a place I had wanted to visit for sometime.

Bodie, California is the quintessential western ghost town. This famous site is a California state park located on the east side of the Sierra Nevada mountains. A kind of out-of-the-way place that is not really close to anything but well worth the trip to see it. I have seen many photos of this place over the years with wonderful morning and eveni...
