Thinking back on Arizona, one major theme rises to the surface- it had all kinds of valleys. There were massive valleys, narrow slot canyons, sharp bends- and we barely scratched the surface of Arizona.
Part 1- In which we find all of the amazingness Utah has to offer and it’s way more than we can squeeze into one blog. OK- so Utah wins the grand prize for being the most underrated state yet. Of course, Mormons, climbers, skiiers and Sundance Film Fest attendees have surely known this secret for[…]
Our post on Colorado won’t be very long. We did some work for a Minneapolis client in Denver, so much of the week was spent prepping for (and working on) those video shoots. That said, we did manage to squeeze in a few non-work adventures!
The theme of our time in New Mexico is definitely aliens—alien planets, alien landscapes, and aliens themselves (we did visit Roswell, after all).
HO BOY. Did we ever have a Texas-sized time visiting this fine state. To achieve our overstuffed itinerary, we not-so-secretly stole a couple of days from Oklahoma. We felt justified doing so because Texas is SO big- plus, we wanted to cram as much as possible into this state, which we’ve both visited and loved[…]
Alright- I’ll try to make this the last time that we say, “we weren’t expecting much from [insert state name here]”- (err… at least until the midwest later this summer). Oklahoma was yet another place that we had some reservations about.
We didn’t think much about Arkansas before going on this trip (no surprises there, right? Are you sensing a pattern here with all of the preconceived notions and upended expectations we’ve got going on?) Arkansas sounds a little nebulous- trees? Dust? Rocks? A landlocked state that’s kinda southern? Civil rights?
We didn’t have much difficulty deciding where to go in Louisiana. Even though one might imagine the slow creep of rural Louisiana- gators, bayous, and swamps, heavy trees and sticky weather- the draw of New Orleans was too irresistible to pass up.
Mississippi! Say it! Spell it out loud! It’s yet another southern state that neither of us had been to, and knew very little about (aside from how fun it is to say when you’re a kid.)
It’s probably safe to say that most people don’t think much of Alabama. Alabamans, don’t be offended- we know people think (or rather, don’t think) about our home state of Minnesota in much the same way. And, like you, we know our state to be full of treasures unknown to the rest of the world!
