For me, few places provide the freedom I feel when I’m on the road in the American West. Every mile of highway seems to hold the potential for some new experience or fantastic panoramic vision.

I have logged so many miles, stayed in so many chain hotels and finished out the night in so many countless diners, bars and convenience stores, it’s mind boggling putting it all in chronological order.

What follows is a tightly edited but certainly unrelated selection of sights I’ve encountered while traveling.
