On the road again: Scenes from ‘road schooling’ across the Southwest
As fall set in and school went virtual, our family of five packed our car with gear, sanitizer, Pedialyte ice pops (great for avoiding dehydration in the mountains!) and even a travel potty and hit the road on a mission to explore new learning environments by road schooling from Texas to Colorado. Some places worked out flawlessly, with strong Wi-Fi and excellent coronavirus precautions. Others? Not so much. Our remote learning experience was infused with exotic animals, aliens, swimming holes, hot springs, bike riding and spellbinding geologic formations — but also with the occasional hot spot failure and pandemic challenges. Here are some images from the stops of our road school adventure.
