How many days were you on the road?
Well, the photo count does include the drive from Seattle to LA in a rental van, and LA back to New England in the vehicle we bought (which includes a ton of shots while we hung out for a week in the Grand Canyon and Sedona areas). Total trip time 140 days. My son and I each had our camera bags mounted on our handlebars and were constantly shooting stuff we found interesting as we were riding.

The reason Idaho has such a low representation is the need for a passport at the borders. People coming in from Nevada or Wyoming are surprised to find the gates locked.
I play go. I use Macintosh. Of course I ride a recumbent

That, and the fact that Idaho drivers showed us the least courtesy toward cyclists of any state we travelled through, and that the roads had the smallest shoulders and worst road conditions. At least, this was true on Hwy 200 along Lake Pend Orielle. Spectacular scenery, otherwise.

Hi
There is something special about heading out on a road the me and my bike have never been on before. So, that makes every state and every place interesting.

I would think that there would be routes that ride well without being so photogenic.  Is aesthetic intrigue the only factor that makes a ride interesting?
