7 Days in America:
I have decided to start posting some images from a 7 day bike trip I took a few years back through Washington State with my dad and some friends. It was a amazing: great company, beautiful scenery, and small town America in all its glory.
I have to admit I find Americana very fascinating… equal parts charming and bizarre, simultaneously representing the greatest of things and the worst of things. As a born and bred Canadian with American parents, maybe I am pulled in two different directions?
Strangely, even in places in the US I have never been before there is a vague familiarity. I think it is years of television and hollywood taking their toll. Too much Leave it to Beaver and now pop culture and actual life experiences have mixed together in my psyche…
Image 1: The Great American Road Trip… highways… VW vans… freedom… America… maybe some Skynyrd on the 8 track.
