My US geography is mostly fine and accurate, but the NE really messes me up. All those little states ... where do they fit in????

Corialicia, I haven't been to Glacier National Park, but the drive through Banff is stunning.

Lake Louise is one of the most iconic photos of Canada, and justifiably so.

Lake Louise was damn cold, and it was the middle of winter.

Seeing snow for the first time ever on Grouse Mountain was a bit of a let down. It's not soft and slushy at all.

Rattle and Hum is the best roadtrip album there is if you're with another U2 fan. So much fun; the absurdities of the record actually become a strong point in that context.

Fleet Foxes' debut if you're by yourself. Such a reflective, evocative record that works especially well if you're driving through the mountains.

Great call. I was driving through West Virginia in late May with that album playing. It was a gorgeous day and the landscape was such a vibrant green.

I may have mentioned this a thousand times already, but The Joshua Tree by U2 is one hell of an excellent driving album, especially on one of my new favorite roads: NM 104 from Tucumcari to Las Vegas.

I almost jumped on the back of a powder blue Harley in Nashville with an old friend but I hadn't seen him in so long I wasn't sure how reliable he was. Plus, I figure I already had the best.

And based on how many beers he had at dinner, I think forcing him into my rental car instead was the right decision.
