Exploring Cities, Towns, and Places In Between


November 1-15, 2005

The Journey Begins!

The journey begins from Denver, with this author/editor putting all his belongings into storage, packing the van, and heading west!!  Across the Rockies past snow covered ski resorts to the canyons of Utah and Arizona and a few scattered towns.  While this journey will search for livable, exciting, and replicable features of our urban communites, it will first highlight some of natures beauty.


The first 15 days of travel covered about 2200 miles, from Denver to the Moab, Utah area, then south to Blanding, Utah, Glen Canyon, Escalante, Bryce and Zion National Parks.  In Arizona we see the Grand Canyon, Flagstaff, Sedona, Petrified Forest National Park and Canyon de Chelly.  Near the Four Corners area Hovenweep, Cortez, Mesa Verde and Durango are explored and enjoyed!  So, to start this journey click on any hyperlinks below to an adventure into some of Americas finest natural places.  There are a lot of choices and lots of photos, so you might want to pick the most appealing first, especially if you have a slow download.  - Logan Perkins, Editor
