Road trip!

What I have seen and/or done:

The world's first truck stop
Another Stonehenge-like thing
The Precious Moments Chapel
The world's largest totem pole

Camped in my friends' back yard (because I'm allergic to their cats)
The first Phillips 66 gas station
The leaning water tower
The western hemisphere's largest cross

The Cadillac Ranch
The total lunar eclipse, from white sand dunes in the desert, in the middle of a military missle range

Petroglyphs
The Very Large Array radio telescope

Driven up a mountain on a dirt road which boasted a sign reading "Travel Not Recommended." In the dark.
Ruins of old Spanish missions
Petrified Forest National Monument
The Bonneville Salt Flats
Zion National Park (again)

Twice driven roads that required turning around.. I need four-wheel drive next time
Lots of snow
Meteor Crater (not worth $12!)
The Great Salt Lake
Nearly saw the world's largest open pit mine..but they weren't letting visitors in this time of year
Held $2000 worth of camera equipment out the window while driving 70mph.

The redwoods of northern California
Met a guy who was one month into biking from Washington to Florida
California state route 1. What a blast! My engine has never spent more much-needed time above 4000 rpm.
The world's only drive-through tree
San Francisco
Seen Elk, mule deer, and bison. Heard coyotes and owls.

More stuff that I'm probably forgetting.. I'll do a better job when I get home!
