I could probably write a book on all of the road trips my family took, but one trip is known in my family as "The Trip". We had a small poptop camper and in 1974, we took off in June for a 3 1/2 week trip that started in Florida and spanned several National Parks and many other interesting places. We had never ventured west before, so this was a chance to see many new and different places.

Once we got through Texas, we entered into one of the most interesting stretches in the trip. In New Mexico, we toured Carlsbad Caverns and White Sands National Monument and went through Albuquerque and Taos.

We didn't have any reservations anywhere and only encountered a problem finding a place on the July 4th weekend when we were in Cheyenne, WY. We finally found a campground that was out of official sites, but let us and many others park out in a large empty lot. We didn't realize how many others were out there until we got up the next morning and were sure glad we had found the place. From there we headed into Colorado.
