A Grab Bag from America’s Back Roads – The Z Things #AtoZChallenge

In 2018 I  will feature a random (yet alphabetical) selection of photos I have taken from my nearly 20 years of back roads travel in the United States and Canada.  I may even throw in a few random shots from other trips to Japan, Mexico and the Philippines. My theme is called America’s Back Roads: A Grab Bag of Places in Pictures.

    Another great job of making through the alphabet. Congratulations on finishing the Challenge of 2018. You took us to places I’d never heard of let alone been to.
