Day 94

A beautiful spot

June 29th, 2010


  1. Wow! again. And who said they weren’t getting good shots on their camera phone??? This is an even awesomer shot than the 3 previous ones.

  2. Lori says:

    Matt did you sit on the bank and soak your feet? This scene is just refreshing and serene. Dorinda your just a skip and jump from me in zip city 44444

  3. Nicole says:

    Just plain awesome

  4. MN Roxanne says:

    You have a much better view from your road- than the freeway…. love this serene shot.

  5. Jeff says:

    The rugged wild west. I can see what they mean. Awesome shot # xxxx

  6. Nan says:

    It IS very lovely. Makes me want to visit North Dakota now; never had any plans to visit there before! Thoroughly enjoying following you across the country in pictures.

  7. Bill Leslie says:

    I am a river flowing beside you,
    I am a voice in your dreams,
    Water like honey shimmering golden,
    I am much more than I seem.

    Great shot Matthew!

  8. Kellie... again =) says:

    All of your beautiful pics make me want to paint the scenery around you… Maybe by the time you get to California I’ll have a stack of paintings for you! I can’t imagine the enlightenment you have found on the road… that kind of freedom is what dreams are made of. =) Happy hoofing!

  9. Kevin from NC says:

    This shot with the Interstate in the background?? reminds me of Blue Highways: A Journey into America by William Least Heat-Moon. He travelled the side roads, only he did it with a beat-up old van instead of walking. Like Matt, he took the time to stop along the way and meet many interesting folks.

  10. Dave from Milwaukee says:

    Matt… when the days get long and your feet are sore…remember that you are not just walking for yourself. You are walking for all of us. You are on an epic journey much like Odyseeus. You inspire. Keep truckin’ brother, keep truckin. No this comment was not about the scenery….that is nice too.

  11. Karen says:

    These cell phone pictures are phenomenal. And Uncle Bill is writing a song for you to go along with the shot. He’ll have Lorica playing it at the next concert.

    I agree with Dave from Milwaukee. I check the blog every day just to see what new sights I’ll see.

  12. Linda says:

    Beautiful I wish I were with you. I have always wanted to see this country. I’ve never been out west. It is nice to feel like we’re all along with you for this journey that you are on, Matt. Thank you so much for the beautiful photos and letting us know there are some wonderful, kind-hearted people in this country.

    stay safe

    Makes me wonder where the kid in me would start to hunt for crawdads…..
    Didn’t se this much in New York City walks I betting…..

  14. Sarah says:

    I love you’ve inspired more than one person to post poetry in response to your photos. I’m sorry ,I can’t really follow suit – I can really only quote the last few lines of a Road Less Traveled, which might be more than appropriate, actually… but still… I enjoy the posts from others!

    This is beautiful – it’s like you’ve wandered into the Shire :).
