Tucson to Denver Road Trip

I recently spent a week driving back roads from Tucson, Arizona to Denver, Colorado. It was about as different from Seattle as it could be. Brilliant sun and dark shadows. Flat straight highways and jagged mountains on the horizon. Also, admittedly, not very urban. But very sketchable!

Saguaro National Park, Tucson, Arizona

We started at Saguaro National Park near Tucson. I can always draw more Saguaro.

Silver City, New Mexico to Taos

There were a couple long days of driving and sketching the view from the passenger seat. At a rest stop I could not resist drawing the sun and the great shadows through the trees.

Ramona's Cafe, New Mexico
A good diner in Lordsville, New Mexico.

Rio Grande Gorge

And I finished the sketchbook at the Rio Grande gorge outside Taos, New Mexico.
