    They're so calming, but fun at the same time.

    I have this fantasy that one day I'll go around and pick up all my friends that live in different states and we'll just drive and have fun. ☺

    I love road trips....

    long or short. A clean sports car, music, top down and my girl (position still open) by my side. Seeing the sights and stopping in small towns for good food and conversations with the locals.

    US 550 from Durango to Ouray

    and then back via Rico and Delores. The San Juan Skyway it is my favourite road of all time . Hit coal bank and then over Molas sumit and down in to Silverton before braving the Red Mountain Pass to Ouray.
