Summer is a favorite time of year for me. Over the years I've enjoyed many July and August road trips criss crossing America both with my family when I was a child and now with my own family that includes hubbie plus two sons and two daughters.

The vintage and modern images illustrating this post capture just a small part of all the memories of the natural beauty I've personally experienced both inside National Parks and on the multitude of scenic byways and back roads that wind through the Lower 48 contiguous U.S. that I've traveled.

August may be just around the corner but there's still plenty of summertime left for you to do some road tripping of your own to witness nature for yourself and at the same time in the process enter to win a brand new vehicle that is gentler on the environment.

That's right. By joining Exit the Highway, which is a project of TogetherGreen a joint green initiative of Toyota and the National Audubon Society you'll be automatically entered to win a new 2012 Prius v, just like the one I test drove, loved, and reviewed on Mommy Blog Expert some months ago.
