And back again
I started this sun-bleached map after my first cross-country trip out to California. My uncle got this detailed county map for me from a map store on Pico that sadly went out of business years ago. He had one on his wall and as a welcome to Los Angeles, got me started on my own. Since then I've crossed the country twice more and explored the recesses of the incredible West (doesn't hurt that the counties are the size of eastern states.) Years ago, I never imagined getting up to Wyoming and Montana or South Dakota, much less calling them home for a little while. The past few months have felt like a dream. I guess coloring in the little blocks is a way to make it seem real.
