When we were dating, my husband, Henry, and I took a “make-or-break-it” trip from Midland, Texas, to Portland, Oregon. Luckily, we made it—in no small part due to stops in places like Marfa, Texas, and the Grand Canyon. More recently, my sister and I took a road trip in a vintage Cadillac throughout the Southwest. I love the simplicity and languid time of being packed in a car with those you love, visiting the places that make our country spectacular. This month, grab a map and start exploring!
