As we put 2020 to rest and look forward to 2021, I wanted to share a few highlights from the past year’s Posts From the Road series.
These are images from trips prior to 2020 but never published until last year. Hopefully, 2021 will be more open to travels and adventures.
Editor’s note: Longtime Los Alamos photographer Gary Warren and his wife Marilyn were traveling around the country prior to the pandemic and he has been sharing his photographs, which appear in the ‘Posts from the Road’ series published in the Sunday edition of the Los Alamos Daily Post.

Colorado National Monument: The Colorado National Monument lies on the western side of Colorado near the city of Grand Junction. The park sits on the side of the Uncompahgre Plateau overlooking the Grand Valley. Rim Rock Drive offers visitors fabulous views of the colorful sandstone cliffs and red rock formations from its various lookout points. Photo by Gary Warren/ladailypost.com
El Camino del Rio: The El Camino del Rio is a 66-mile stretch of highway, which twists and turns as it hugs the Rio Grande River near Big Bend National Park in Texas. The road takes travelers through rugged desert mountains with many pull offs and stops for viewing the scenery. This image shows a portion of the road as it winds its way through the hillsides with the Rio Grande River in the shadow on the right side of the image. Photo by Gary Warren/ladailypost.com
