When winter turned bitter in NYC, Erin Lindsey and Denny Brownell of Escape Brooklyn had the great idea to take a week-long road trip through Southwest. They shed some layers, took thousands of pictures, Instagrammed on Fathom's behalf, and collected their fair share of vintage paraphernalia along the way. Here's a recap of the highlights, day by day.

THE GREAT SOUTHWEST – In March 2015, Denny and I road-tripped from West Texas to New Mexico for our travel website, Escape Brooklyn. We drove more than a thousand miles in seven days, staying in ghost towns, refurbished vintage trailers, a huge safari tent, and Southwestern-style Adobe cabins.
