Last week while I was standing at the Souternmost point in the Southernmost city in the US mainland, Key West, on August 11th, 2009 just before the sun set into the ocean's horizon, I made a decision to travel with more distinct purpose. Well, other than just the seeing of the world, the expanding of my horizons, the having of adventures, and the appreciation of things and places far away. I have decided to give myself exactly a year to complete the travelling and photo documentation of the following in the contiguous United States:

The Western most: Cape Alava, WA

The Eastern most: West Quoddy Head, Maine

TheNorthernmost, Northwest Angle, MN

The geographical center of the US near Lebanon, KS:
Ever been in 4 places at once? The 4 Corners:

“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.” - Jawaharial Nehru
So you see, I have places to be in my places to see. I'm excited to find a way to get to these places. I'm excited to go on a journey to somewhere planned and find out all that is unplanned along the way.
