This home movie captures the Mitchell Family on a road trip from Texas to California, which takes them through New Mexico, Arizona and Nevada. Stops along the way include natural landmarks such as Carlsbad Caverns National Park and the Grand Canyon, as well as the man-made spectacles of the Hoover Dam and Las Vegas, before the family arrives at their final destination of Disneyland.
