I forgot to mention the lovely "Coast of Maine" which we visit very often.

For driving through, spending the night, taking a deep breath and thanking your stars you're alive to see it: Monument Valley, UT; the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. The Paria Plateau and the Vermillion Cliffs, AZ. The entire area around Moab, UT. Driving through the mountains toward Yellowstone from any point in Montana. (Yellowstone is obvious). Driving to Yellowstone from Jackson, WY. Yes, also Going to the Sun Road, Glacier, MT. Driving south on Highway 1, CA. The 17-mile Drive, Carmel, CA. The Columbia Gorge, OR/WA.

For immersing oneself in the history of our nation and feeling it right there, all around you: Washington, DC. San Antonio, TX, and the Alamo. Tombstone, AZ. The Little Big Horn Battlefield, MT, and all the Indian Wars battlefields in Northern WY. The "Mother Lode," Route 49, CA. Old Town in Sacramento, CA. A brief visit to Boston puts it on my list, too. I'm sure Williamstown is a fantastic experience, but I have yet to go there.

My personal idea of heaven: North Idaho! Friendliness, clean air, lakes and rivers, deep dark woods, meadows, snow clad mountains...

Best big city, although things have changed...San Diego.

Home. There's no place like home. I've lived in 17 states and provinces, and home is always good.

Point Reyes National Seashore, north of San Francisco. I never get tired of that area.
