Great American Roadtrip Part Two – Texas and New Mexico

Hello. Here I am posting from the deserts of California again. We’ve been having some interesting adventures here in the scorching heat which I’ll elaborate on in my next post. I’m looking forward to editing and sharing photographs from the Grand Canyon. Just a couple more days left of our cross-country road-trip. For now, I hope you will enjoy looking at these photographs that we took while driving through Texas and (beautiful, beautiful) New Mexico! Love and peace.

A public art instillation called The Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Texas. Paul took this first photograph.

Somewhere along 40 West in Texas.

The remaining images were taken in New Mexico as we drove to Santa Fe.

Paul took this beautiful photograph below as the sun lowered.

Great American Roadtrip Part One – Tennessee

Here are some photos from the first few states Paul and I crossed during this crazy cross-country road-trip of ours. We’re currently in the Mojave Dessert of California, slowly creeping up in the Uhaul-carting Volvo to our final destination of Ashland, Oregon! We’re spending a lot of time staring into the landscape in amazement, giggling together, and listening to audiobooks. I will share some photos from our adventures in New Mexico and Arizona soon. Love and peace.

The mountains of North Carolina.

My amazing road-trip companion with his Walmart shades.

The next few images were taken during a quick stop in Cookville, Tennessee. The town was named after my Grandma Julia’s family, the Cooks.

It was our first time visiting Tennessee.


The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee.

We took a bus tour (“terr”) that brought us to several places throughout Nashville, including a brief stop for Cokes at a “Honky Tonk”

After Nashville, we stopped in Memphis to see Graceland, Elvis’ home.

Paul took this wide-angle photo. This was my favorite part of the estate; it felt like a gypsy tent

Driving into Arkansas where we laughed with my Grandpa for a couple of days

I will post more of the road-trip soon!
