My joy in exploring the treasures of the Southwestern United States is multiplied when I can share what I have experienced whether it's a great little restaurant, a bargain vacation or a colorful festival. I will provide a forum for interaction with my readers and look forward to incorporating your special "finds" in my articles and searching out personal Southwest travel experiences written by bloggers.
