Driving over rocky terrain in a Jeep for three days lends itself to a good soundtrack. In fact, it requires one. My new friends Olly, Sarah, Tom, our always-calm-and-collected driver Marin, and I rotated our iPods hourly to create an eclectic and memorable musical backdrop to the most beautiful scenery in the world. Here are a few of those songs, and some more pictures. Enjoy!
“Pretender” – Foo Fighters
“I’ve Been Everywhere” – Johnny Cash
“Fake Empire” – The National
And finally, my favorite. Over the past through months, across half a continent, this song has burrowed its way into my heart and will always inhabit a special place there. It’s also one of my favorite music videos of all time.
“Latinoamérica” – Calle 13
