  •  those other not so popular places. . . (4+ / 0-)

    well, I'm into that, elfling. I don't know if you're a hiker or a backpacker, though I've racked up thousands of miles doing both, but here in New Mexico, particularly away from city life and such, you can walk one, maybe two miles, and be in the most fantastic country, ever. It's not even protected. I'm thinking the Rio Puerco landscape, say, en route to the Jemez Mountains. I have driven those roads quite a lot, well, I used to, then stopped, put on my backpack and was enthralled with the scenery, the wildlife, the solitude, the silence. All those places you mentioned, and of course, driving slow and easy to make sure the sense perceptions take it all in. . .everyone of those places are special. The Gila Wilderness is also one of my favorites. Anyway, I could go on and on about this, and so could you, but point taken: find the slow roads in life, folks, take your time and explore out of the way places that aren't heavy with foot traffic. And why not break the routine of a driving habit now and again and take a different? Indeed! Thanks for the lovely comment and posting.

    Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.
