R is for the open road

In keeping with my US south west theme for april’s challenge I searched through possible, towns, rivers, animals beginning with the letter R but just when I thought I’d treat the ornithologists to yet another post I realised one of the reasons I love the south west so much is because of the open road, and the countless miles of road which constantly surprise and enthral. Believe me, if you lived most of the year on 25sq miles of island you would love to take to the wide roads offering the chance to drive all day and all night….

So here is a short photographic journey, from the ‘mother’road- possibly one of the most iconic roads in the world, Route 66 – to the joys of the off road, road signs and the roadrunner ( just to keep the twitchers happy!)

I hope you approve of my choices.

In response to Blogging from A to Z April Challenge

I LOVE. This junction in flagstaff.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla https://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
