Lost in Oregon

I have these maps…… some of you have seen them.  They are plastic road maps of the United States. I mark every road I drive and photograph.  My goal is to drive and photograph every road in the United States.  No, I don’t really think I can do that, but trying sure is fun!!

When I created a workshop in Washington for this coming June, I thought – great – on the way I’ll take some new roads. So that’s what I’m doing.  I’m finishing up a Pacific Northwest book so I have a good excuse to take my time.  Right now I’m based in Baker City, Oregon for about 5 days.  There are a whole bunch of “new” roads here.

I never know what I’ll find when I do this.  I like to come without too much research.  Sure, I talk to locals and do some internet searching, but my happiest moment is to come around a corner and  find a photograph about to happen.

Here are some photos that happened today:

Elkhorn Peak

Sumpter Valley Railroad

Unity Lake

These were taken today.  I found a little more, but I like these.  Tomorrow, I’ll take other roads and find other stuff.  It’s all about the hunt!!

By the way – 2 books were released today!!!!!  American Carnival and How did You Get That Shot are out!!!
