Road Trip America’s Arizona and New Mexico: 25 Scenic Side Trips (Key to Maps)

by Rick Quinn

Maps Key

Each Scenic Side Trip has it’s own detailed map showing the attractions and sights along your way. Use the Key to Scenic Side Trips Maps on the inside back cover that explains the map symbols for Points of Interest, Roads, Towns & Cities, Boundaries, and more. All the maps are to scale, so you’ll know how far it is to delicious pie in Pietown, New Mexico, for example!

But that’s not all. You can download SST maps, and add your own points of interest to use online, offline, or print—and it’s free! Just go to to see this special tie in. (Available after book launch April 3rd, 2018.)
