Attention: These photo pages are out of date because I cannot maintain this web site alone and because I'm usually on the road. Scroll through the Aimless Blog to see pictures I've taken with my phone.

Here are some thumbnailed links to photos from my Aimless journey in late 2006 (in chronological order). I selected these particular photos for a variety of reasons, beginning with their ability to tell a story. However, many of the pictures don't contribute to the story at all. Some of them are here because I wanted to show some of the people I encountered along the way, while others are here because I just love how they turned out.

Under each of my favorite pics, the date is shown in boldface & underline. The bottom two-thirds of Page 2 is loaded with pics I love, but Page 1 and Page 3 contain their fare share, too. (Your browser may scale down the pics, so click each pic to display it as full-size.)

12/17/2006 - There's really nothing all that interesting about this one. (Looking west at sunset in Quartzsite.)

12/17/2006 - During her shift late at night, Jessie Payne saw me sitting in the Love's dining area, munching on a small bag of Doritos. Recognizing that I might be hungry and broke, she bought me a sandwich combo at the Subway inside the truck stop. Thanks Jessie. I'll never forget your amazingly kind gesture.


[]
12/18/2006 - After spending most of the night outside,  unable to get a ride at the truck stop, unable to take even a short nap, shivering in the 30-degree weather, experiencing serious pain from my dislocated ankle, and losing my sanity, I limped to the I-10 Exit 17 eastbound on-ramp in hopes of finding a kind soul willing to give me a ride toward Phoenix.



[]
12/18/2006 - No one stopped for me, so I took some pictures of the Quartzsite sunrise.


[]
12/18/2006 - The sun just kept rising in Quartzsite, and the travelers just kept passing me by so I could take all the pictures I needed.



[]
12/18/2006 - There are so many colors in the western Arizona sunrise.


[]
12/18/2006 - While I continue to wait for one of the world's greatest people to pick me up, the sun comes into view over the mountains to the east.



[]
12/18/2006 - I really love this picture.


[]
12/18/2006 - I love this one, too.

[]
12/18/2006 - This one is great. The thing I love most about this picture is that the Interstate sign seems like it's really there, even though it's just a shadow. Your brain almost tricks you into reading the "Interstate 10" writing. Notice how big the shadows of my bags are, now that they're sitting side by side. Nope, it wasn't fun carrying it all around. But then again, I've never felt more alive than at certain times during this trip when I was sore, cold, hungry, and generally in extreme discomfort.
