No fancy hotels, no glitzy neon lit pleasure strips, no over-developed, crowded suburban sprawl; just a part of America most people don’t know even exists. This is “Looking for America” from a different perspective.
I have made over 8 cross country trips both throughout the United States and Canada. Each time I go I find it fascinating to travel off the beaten path and discover the unusual and new things that most people are unaware of.
