The southwestern part of the United States holds a special place in my heart. While growing up my family and I went on a roadtrip that included the southwest, and all of the west coast. Sounds amazing, right? Well I barely remember these locations because I threw a temper tantrum the entire time and ended up with a memories of hate for the southwest. I now understand exactly what I was missing out on. This is redemption for to my family, for the southwest, and for myself.
