SOUTHWEST PILGRIMAGE: ARIZONA & NEW MEXICO

With Memorial Day weekend a wrap, it is time to get back to sharing my epic journey with you across the country.  After exiting California, we headed into Scottsdale for the night and then made our way to New Mexico through some back road driving and exploring off the beaten path.  The sights we saw along these few days were diverse and rich in character and history.  From the skylines and desert dunes to the many antique store stops and roadhouses, there was a treasure to be found around every corner.  It was amazing how the landscape changed from Arizona to New Mexico and it was so interesting to pass through both in the same day and see it gradually change. For this post, I’m utilizing Instagram to tell the story from my feed as well as my traveling partner’s @lohdy.  Hope you enjoy!
