      Bruce,
      Your blog and photos are just amazing! I was not aware that you would end up in the middle of the desert, and on a mountain top, no less! Very nice that your friend could join you on this portion of your venture! We will look forward to all you photos and explanation that allow us to witness your challenging and exciting adventure! Lorraine and Paul

      Bruce,
      Thank you for the historical background. I enjoy seeing the image sets from each point. The compilation will be a super cross-section of the USA.
      Best,

      Cheers to the bootstrap approach. This is perhaps the best alternative to the nepotism of regional arts/culture grants.

      Thanks Chris! The plan is to create a book after all the pictures are made, but that will be another whole project and a year or so away. I will keep you informed.

      I don't know whether it's in your plans or fits your artistic vision, but you might consider doing a book when this is all over--the collection of all the fortieth parallel photos would be fantastic.

      Whether you do the book or not, good luck. This is a seriously cool project.
