As Waterman Ormsby wrote, traveling by stagecoach across the Great Southwest was a grand adventure:

“To many Americans who travel for pleasure this route will be a favorite.

…they can travel by comfortable stages, stopping at such interesting points as they may choose for rest, and enjoying many opportunities for viewing the beautiful, the wonderful, and the sublime products of nature, which are well disposed along the entire distance.”

His words are even more true today. We can travel across this amazing land in the comfort and convenience of climate-controlled vehicles that are digitally connected to GPS and information networks.
