Skyline Drive (in Shenandoah National Park). The Road to Hana (in Hawaii). The Overseas Highway (to the Florida Keys). And, of course, the road trip that tops them all: the Pacific Coast Highway...

    An Epic 5-Day Southwest Road Trip & National Park Itinerary

    Whenever I find myself in the Southwest, I always end up in awe. For being a relatively small region of the U.S., it's chock-full of natural wonders. In addition to awe, I also feel gratitude that so much of this region has been preserved and protected for future generations through our national park system and other land management programs.
