“Travel America” and Me

20 Feb

The other day, we were flying to Arizona, and I picked up a magazine to read on the plane. Travel America lists over 250 places to visit in the United States. As I skimmed through the pages, I began to count all of the ones that I have visited. I have been lucky enough to travel to all 50 states and have seen some great stuff. This is a list of places that Travel America and I have in common.

Wait, here is a picture that I took on the trip to get you in the mood. It is in the Superstition Mountains.img_2279

    I was surprised. I’ve been more places than I thought. Not as many as you, but not too bad 🙂

      You should get the magazine and see what else is in there.

      Thanks. I was lucky that my parents like to take road trips.
