Part One: The Great Escape in Which Our City-Weary Heroes Take the Road
The travelers: Two city slickers hailing from New York, one part photographer, one part adventurer, two parts curious and itching to stretch their driving legs on open roads and see sunsets over mountain ranges they hadn't seen before. You know, making Thelma and Louise proud, minus the whole driving a perfectly good rental car over a cliff. Their accomplices? Two California love birds (a Bonnie and Clyde reference seems apropos, no?) collecting on that much-needed break from the 9 to 5 in Silicon Valley, and ready to hit 95 (mph that is).
The scene: The roads (and trails) of Utah.
The mission: To not utter the word "no" in the face of the open road.
The trusty steed: One wild-spirited Mustang (convertible).
As 2015 is perhaps too quickly coming to a close, it only seems fitting that I share one of my favorite trips of the year, that being one epic road trip through Utah, over the next few days. It came at a time, as most good road trips do, when I desperately needed an escape. And escape we did. From city-life. From standstill traffic. From work. From obligations. From emails (sorta). From all the things that somehow always find a way of sneaking in even when you think you've shut all the doors and windows. And mail slots. Darn mail slots.
What were we looking for? That content sigh of relief when you realize your biggest decisions for the day are what classic rock band do we want to listen to next in the car? (Stones, Doors and Beatles didn't disappoint.) Or what arch should we do sunrise salutations at? (Broken Arch in Arches National Park.) Or my personal favorite, how do you set the darn cruise control on this thing? (We never quite figured that out -- although we loved our Mustang just the same.)
So what did we find? Tune in tomorrow for PART TWO: The Heist. Until then, click through to see more photos from Arches National Park and Canyonlands.
