Big Blend’s HOLA! TO HI Y’ALL Road Trip Adventure!
From the Gateway of the Great Southwest to the Land of Bourbon, Horses & History!

This September, Nancy J. Reid and Lisa D. Smith, Big Blend’s mother-daughter travel, radio and publishing team are getting back on the road to continue their Big Blend Spirit of America Tour Series, their quest to visit and cover all units within the national park service, along with their gateway communities and surrounding parks and public lands! Of course Priscilla, their pink sock monkey travel mascot, will be along for this 2-3 month fall road trip.

“Oh the places you’ll go.” – Dr. Seuss


THE ROUTE
Starting point is in Yuma, Arizona “Gateway to the Great Southwest” and home to the Yuma Crossing National Heritage Area. We will travel across Southern Arizona and New Mexico to Texas, and will follow part of the El Camino Real de los Tejas National Historic Trail up to Natchitoches, the oldest city in Louisiana, and home to the Cane River National Heritage Area and Cane River National Historical Park. From there it’s east to Mississippi and up the scenic Natchez Trace Parkway to Tennessee. From Nashville we will make our way to Springfield in Central Kentucky “The Land of Bourbon, Horses & History,” known for being home to Abraham Lincoln’s birthplace and his ancestral heritage. The final stretch of the trip heads south through the Great Smoky Mountains with stops in Georgia, Alabama, and Florida’s Pan Handle region, and then it’s west on Old Hwy 80 back home to Tucson, Arizona!
