a sight to see

Every turn had me ooo-ing and ahhh-ing.
Cactus. Red rocks. Mountains.  Views that stretched on forever.
I loved it all. 
I wanted to sear the beauty onto my heart... but the wheels rolled on and on, and taking time to press it in might mean missing the next stunning sight.  The landscape kept on changing and I didn't want to miss a bit.

Seeing this part of my own country widens my smile, and my view of the world.  Perhaps there are those that have never dipped their toes into the Gulf, or have never had the thrill of riding a wave into shore... but there I was enthralled by red rocks and mountains and a deep blue sky that stretched on forever without a cloud to interupt it.  Is one better than the other?  My heart says no... but my toes might disagree.

So pretty, but I'll have to agree with your toes.
