    The High Road

    By Greg Blake Miller

    The thing is, Santa Fe is good enough. If you’re driving, as my 13-year-old son and I did, through alpine Flagstaff and then across the badlands of Interstate 40, and doing it during monsoon season, you’ll get your adventure, all right. Zero visibility behind a pale gray semi, the kid warning my old eyes just in time.

    American Safari

    By Julian Kilker

    I really discovered what “safari” means while living in Kenya in the late 1980s, when I traveled by bus across that country every few weeks. These weren’t the khaki-clad, native-guided, exotic animal-hunting safaris of such Hollywood films as Mogambo, but more serendipitous explorations of remote locations under challenging conditions.
