I decided to take some pictures along the way, and worked them into a slideshow below. You can also look at them HERE. I made some clarifying comments on some of the pictures, but only a few. I figure it's more powerful to let the images just stand on their own.
I really had a blast doing this - will probably do another one soon. I think it's meaningful to intentionally seek out and experience different communities that don't fall into the handful we spend most of our time in. Not only did I enjoy the scenery, but I met some nice people along the way. Good way to spend the day, if you ask me.
