Here are a couple of articles, the first covering a trip through Wisconsin and Minnesota, the second recording a drive through the high plains of North Dakota, one of the most memorable places we've ever visited. 

FOUR CORNERS - A JOURNEY THROUGH SOUTHWEST USA

Follow these links for three sets of photos from a whistlestop tour of the southwest: Utah Rocks focuses on the Beehive State's big five; Four Corners Plus looks at some of the other natural wonders of this region; while On The Road is, as its name suggests, a set of road photos.

BLACK-AND-WHITE GALLERY

Some while ago Kevin Green enhanced some of my photographs for black-and-white printing. This was initially just a personal project - for my own use - but the results were impressive enough to convince me they were worth sharing here too.

Guadalupe Mountains, West Texas

Travel writing areas of this site include 'On-the-road reports' a selection of travel articles and accompanying photography that first appeared on the RoadTrip America forum; 'Route ideas', an ever growing series of USA road trip suggestions - long and short - complete with tips and advice on what to see and do along the way and links to associated photo sets; 'RoadTrip America', travel writing in the form of much praised and often humorous essays from road trips covering everywhere from Chicago to San Francisco - via the plains of Nebraska, the cowboy country of Wyoming, Colorado's Rocky Mountains, the National Parks of Utah, northern Arizona's Monument Valley and Grand Canyon, the Nevada desert and the mountains of California - and the great byways of Natchez Trace Parkway, the Historic National Road and the Blue Ridge Parkway.
