One of the things I love about road trips out West is the expanse of the land and the road. When we were in New Mexico, we wanted to do some sightseeing, so we had rented a car. We like to get up early and get going, and we had the entire road all to ourselves. That is the great thing about the west - it is less populated and there is opportunity to see some amazing scenery without having to deal with crowds or traffic. This really gave us a sense of freedom as we cruised the open road in this gorgeous state!
