Over 16 Thousand Miles On The Road + My Return To Steemit!

in #photography2 years ago

It was a wild summer.

@dimitri0610, his now fiancee, and I left Alaska on a road trip that opened my eyes to travel and exploring. We spent around 45 days tent camping in Alaska, Canada, and all throughout the United States. I was able to revisit places I had seen as a kid and explored new places in the United States I didn't know existed. I'm back in Alaska for school and I'm definitely looking forward to getting back to sharing my adventures.

This was the longest road trip I've ever been a part of. I was somewhat sad to miss out on summer in Alaska but immensely more excited to experience life on the road. To be clear, living out of a tent and a car for 16,000 miles is tough, but it was an experience I would do all over again if I had the choice. There's a certain feeling of freedom you get from not knowing where you're going to sleep that night (along with some stress).

We were often fighting off mosquitoes and rain, enduring the heat in the desert, or sitting for long periods of time in the car. The ability to see and experience the country with unrivaled flexibility made up for those hardships, tenfold. We met people we had only known through social media and created friendships with some of the most welcoming people I've ever met.

Here are a few of my favorite places along the way. I took about 3,000 photos and will be sharing far more in future posts as I talk about certain areas in more detail. Enjoy!

I really like that last Wyoming pic. Can't wait to see more.

Thank you! Coming soon :)

That Utah photo is awesome! Salt flats right?

Yes! Got caught up in a storm but it made for some incredible light

Amazing shots my friend. Moraine Lake is really a the most beautiful place as I have seen it since my childhood in various magazines, PC wallpapers and this is the first time I have seen somebody here on steemit visiting it and posting the original picture. I am really very happy to see what steemit is doing to the world. It is really connecting people and spreading the happiness here. Your Photography skills are great, I have many things to learn from you. Which camera did you use to take these pictures?

Hello @chaseburnett, thank you for sharing this creative work! We just stopped by to say that you've been upvoted by the @creativecrypto magazine. The Creative Crypto is all about art on the blockchain and learning from creatives like you. Looking forward to crossing paths again soon. Steem on!

The views in your images are simply breathtaking, really beautiful. May I ask what you were shooting on?

My favourites of the bunch are Jasper National Park, Moraine Lake #2, Washington and Utah. If these are a taste of what is to come from those 3,000 images you took, I can't wait to see the rest!

45 days on the road sounds pretty hardcore, but totally worth it by the looks and sounds of things. Incredible life experiences are worth stepping out of ones comfort zone for!
