An American Road Trip?

I have been on several fabulous vacations with my Dad in recent years. There was the cruise to Alaska, the long road trip - spent mostly in the car, frankly - to Nova Scotia and back, and our most recent jaunt to sunny Florida where, I think, we finally got it just right.

But now I will suggest another road trip for you, sparked by the news that this past Monday the Obama Administration declared five more sites in the good ol' U.S.A. national monuments. Go visit 'em all!

The list now sits at a total of 108. You can find them all and a bit of background from your friendly neighborhood Wikipedia here.

What a trip that would be, eh?



"If you hit this sign, you will hit this bridge."

"Welcome to Reed City. If you lived here, you'd be home now."

"Extreme Fire Hazard. Don't Even Fart in the Forest Today."

At a gas station: "Regular - Arm; Mid•Grade - Leg; Premium - First Born"

On the road outside of Las Vegas: "Guns - Wedding Gowns - Cold Beer"

"Drive slow, see our village. Drive fast, see our judge."

Mark's Musings is published on a periodical basis - right now on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays - but that may change without notice.

It's hard and often hits back.
