This is Why I Drive- Views From a Drive Through the Southwest

On almost every road trip I have a day or two where I think Why didn’t I fly? Then I turn a corner and see something truly spectacular or I realize that I now have all this extra time to spend in actually talking to my friends or family members. These are things you miss when you fly. To really prove my point I thought I would share some pictures that we took along the way.

If you’re a road-tripper, why do you choose to drive?
