    This is one of the coolest pictures I’ve seen in a while. I thought of you often this past week, as I have been doing a lot of walking. After about an hour, when my legs begin to tire a bit and my back feels a little twinge (mind you, I am 37 y/o ;) ) …I think of you trekking away on your journey and am humbled. I hope you are still enjoying. It looks as though you are. What a life experience!

  3. I really like these reflection pictures you take.

    We’ve been tracking your trek from Bismarck. If you come through our area we have a place for your tent, and an awesome mailbox, and beer…….and we’re working on the nurses for ya.

    I’ve been following your site from the news article, but never actually commented, but I thought this picture and the caption/title was absolutely beautiful. The sides of the puddle blend so well into the ground and the blue is so gentle and lovely. I think what you’re doing is absolutely amazing, especially how you didn’t try to attach any false noble purpose or higher calling. Just out and about, seeing this country at its bests and worsts and pics documenting all the simple beauty. I’ve lived in the midwest the majority of my life, so it’s wonderful to see the unglorious, peaceful, friendly, simple, down to earth, and frankly somewhat boring side of it depicted so honestly. You document what’s there and that’s unique. I’m envious; I wish I were brave enough to do something like this!
