Almost all of the pictures i took are @ gas stations as we rarely stopped to document anything.

I did not get to bundle up that beauty and take it home with me as a souvenir. It will... unfortunately... be subjected to typical mind fade... which means i might just have to do it again. Aboard something larger this time.

Well Said. I have always been fascinated with the vastness and beauty of the US. I try to explain it to the foreign students I am friends with at UC Berkeley, but it is hard. Taiwan doesn't have the space. The idea of being in the middle of a totally flat area of grassland as far as the eye can see is completely foreign, and impossible to truly imagine.
