In 1909, Alice Ramsey blazed a path across America's landscape and society. Millions of women have followed in her tracks. She was the first woman to drive across America from New York to San Francisco, California - she was twenty-two. She had 3 female companions on her journey. One of my most favorite drives is from Las Vegas, NV to Bluff, Utah. I had my opportunity to drive this route recently. Although, I didn't have 3 female companions to help navigate - I knew this road by heart. The trip solo was therapeutic and self-reflecting. I know this territory like I know paella!
Monument Valley was too overcast but I had to take the shot!
Bluff, Utah cemetery
Ancestors' gravesite. I talk about them here.
For more information about this area, I found a wonderful blogger here.
