A continuation of the motorcycle travel on US 50, 54, 60 to Phoenix, AZ. These older, US highways put you up close with the surroundings. Yes, you stop often in small towns, intersections in the middle of farmland, and speed limits are generally 55 MPH. However, you see, smell, touch the areas of the country in which you travel. Small travel inns, or roadside motels let you park your vehicle next to your room. At times there are no cars or traffic behind or in front of you. Early mornings are like a communion with nature. Most of the pictures taken were in the morning since the sun was behind my back. The camera was tucked inside my jacket waiting to capture a precious moment. If I were on a photographic journey, it would take months to get anywhere.
Take a leisurely trip sometime on these roads and escape the high speed corridor of sterile Interstate freeways.
