The Road Ahead

There is nothing more American than the sense of a road trip. Traveling across the entire country is something so foundational to the American Experience. During my travel to Salt Lake City from New Jersey, the road became a part of my life, a signal that I could go anywhere I wanted to travel. Taken right after I arrived, I realized that I not only relied on the road, but that I was part of it.
