I am in Asheville NC but when I was truck driving before I went from NC to CA and back 2 times a week by way of the southern states. I loved Arizona it was beautiful. But one of the prettiest trips I went on was when we took a load up to Salt Lake City, Utah. It was awsome because it went from flat, to Canyons, to snow covered mountains. It was like 75 degrees F that day in the city but the huge mountains that surround Salt Lake were beautiful!
