Southwest thoughts

It may be no surprise, based on my road trip post, that I've been obsessed with the American Southwest.  It's mostly thanks to just having finished this book, which chronicles the writer's search for the "Anasazi" (quotes used because the term is problematic at best).  I'd love to go on my own journey to these ancient places.  And, to be just a bit more seasonally appropriate, I'd also love to snowshoe through them.
