There are so many places in our beautiful country I want to go and see. We've been to Yellowstone, Rocky Mtn NP, Tetons, Mt.Rushmore, Custer SP, Washington,DC, thru part of Utah and some places in between and all of these I'd go back to in a heart beat, but I know there are a jillion other places, too. What are the "must see" places in your state?

I can only think of about 100 "bucket list" things to see in Illinois and some of them will take almost two weeks to see.

Since you are from Texas, i guess that leaves out the Alamo and the rest of San Antonio.

Yes, been there and done those more than once. Also, Galveston, Corpus, RGV, Austin, Amarillo area (although have not see the "Texas" production). Don't desire to go to Big Bend area ...not much on deserts.

California's National Parks...Sequoia/Kings Canyon and Yosemite will literally take your breath away and renew your soul!

At Yosemite a few years ago, were were standing on a spectacular overlook point...and were joined buy a crowd of German tourists from a big bus. There were ooooing and ahhhing over the view, with camera's clicking. I asked them "But you guys have the Alps, the Black Forest and Neuschwanstein Castle!"

The answer was "Zay are nothzing like zees!" [emoticon] How true!

Bridal Veil...WOW!

Half Dome

Northern New Mexico Campgrounds ** New Mexico Public Camping ** White Sands Nat'l Monument - Alamogordo

San Juans' Attractions - Campgrounds ** Santa Fe's Attractions ** New Mexico Campgrounds & Attractions ** Albuquerque

Trinity Site ** Camping by Lakes New Mexico ** Pancho Villa SP ** Valley of Fires BLM **[emoticon] NM ByWays Map Link

City of Rocks* ** Datil Well BLM ** Misc New Mex Camping ** Green Chile ** Fall Colors *** Silver City Area -Videos

NM Public Campgrounds *** Las Cruces Area ** CHACO CANYON! ** Flagstaff - Gallup - Grants- to Santa Fe Plus

To advoid El Paso you could do this using I-10 by taking US 285 at Fort Stockton to Pecos then continue on the Carlsbad, then Artesia, then US 82 to Alamogrodo via Cloudcroft. Or continue on to Roswell & take US 70 west toward Ruidoso then to Tulaross, or take just past Hondo US 380 follow it to Carrizozo, you will be passing Billy the Kid Country & Lincoln (off the route some but connected to the Lincoln County War Fort Stanton) & Smokey Bear in Capitan, & the neat Valley of Fire BLM Campground, then take US 54 south to Alamogordo. Advise to keep an eye on the weather maps and NM Road Conditions, be able to hole up if one is going to blow through the area you are in or going to be in the next day or so. As a matter of fact you could take US 380 all the way to I-25 at San Antonio & the Bosque del Apache, cut off some miles for sure. I-25 to Los Lunas or just to Socorro where you take US 60 towards Datil, Passing the VLA before you get to Datil & a very Nice BLM Campground.

Big Bend is so much more than desert. I used to think that until I went. It's gorgeous.

If you get to Maine, you've got to visit Acadia Nat'l Park. Bring your hiking shoes and a bicycle....

Boston and the surrounding area's history.


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.
