Great shot! Perfect timing.
Good afternoon Al, I've been following your blog for a couple years and I enjoy your dry humor in your posts and your photography. I'm not sure I could live full time in a van but spending the summer touring the West sounds pretty good. If your ever in Wisconsin I have a ten acre plot of land on a quiet country road you could use for week or more. The Driftless area of Wisconsin and upper Mississippi River Valley is a beautiful area.
Back in 1995 I went on a grand tour of the country, including Wisconsin. I came in through the southwest corner (which I guess is the Driftless area) and visited the Dickeyville Grotto. Then I headed to Milwaukee with the intention of visiting the Harley-Davidson factory, but I was in Madison when I learned the factory was closed for retooling. No tours. So I headed north and ended up in Wisconsin Dells where I took a duck boat ride and did my first bungee jump. Then I went to the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame in Hayward before crossing into Minnesota.
Gorgeous, fit to be framed, put in the Al's hall of fame, I'm partial of course to turquoise.
