  • As a boy I was fascinated with the stories about the Lewis and Clark expedition.  Now that was a road trip, wasn’t it?  I would have loved to be part of it, and I’ll bet many of you would, too.  (Of course, the road was a series of rivers.)  Consider its objectives:  First, to explore […]

  • I’m a lover of fall foliage.  I take at least one foliage road trip every year – sometimes two.  One of nature’s greatest spectacles is the annual color change in our deciduous forests.  In a relatively short period of time, bazillions of trees change from green to every possible shade of yellow, gold, orange and red, […]

  • This is our second entry in a series focusing on cool places, roads or attractions that are off the beaten path.   Today’s destination certainly qualifies.  After all, Alliance, Nebraska, may not be the end of the world . . . but you can see it from there.
