Photos of my 1997 Road Trip
After making record time through the Mojave Desert,
I entered the Arizona desert. Here is a town that seemed
to be having an existential crisis:
That same day, I visited my friend Kelina, who lives in a hand-made adobe cabin
right in the city of Tucson:
Then I went to Los Alomos, NM, to visit the Amazing and Wonderful Abbie,
who is one of the more remarkable people I've ever met. I met her around
New Year's Eve at the Tron Pub in Edinburgh, Scotland, after she had been
working on a farm in Norway for the year. I believe she's now working as
a ranger in Newfoundland or something equally adventurous:
We visited some Anastazi ruins, where I posed dramatically on top of a cliff:
After spending a week in Oklahoma city visiting my brother, I set off northward,
even revisiting the World's Largest Ball of Twine that I'd seen during
Bike Aid '96.
I continued north-westward, visiting some famous monuments along the way.
For example, the cabin where the song "Home On The Range" was written:
The Crazy Horse Memorial:
Little Big Horn:
And the Devil's Tower:
In the Sand Hills of Nebraska, where there are many picturesque ranches...
... I discovered that it is a tradition to place old
boots on fenceposts. Don't ask me why.
Besides such entertaining customs, I enjoyed the tremendous thunderstorms
that passed daily over the prairie:
Unfortunately, after I got to Glacier National Monument in Montana,
I stopped taking photos for some reason. Here's the last picture I found
in my camera:
