Vol.17 On road alone Emmett

The place I visited two years ago---Emmett
a place seems never changes
a place you can see the whole town by one moment of view
a place where free my world from the complex core of nonsense human behavior
a place i'm back with a little bit more knowledge and bit open mind

I wonder, maybe I will live in a place like this when I getting old
Then I know, it's impossible.
I never know what will happen tomorrow
and when I getting old if the world still the world that I know
that satisfied my soul

My niece is 6 month old.

Vol. 16 On road alone Lake Cascade

A Lake is big on the map,
A lake is big in people's mind
what in my eyes,
is a lake wild and empty
a lake with free will and less attraction
A common symptom to the wild gorgeous that few people would understand
sit or lay, hear the call from the wind
flash the memory from the old time
the tales from the time
I tears, cause no one would be able to understand
the story about truth

Vol. 15 On Road alone McCall

Simple but busy
Quite but amazing
smiling face is everywhere and so on the road
I have travel alone the road for a while, the only place can be so small and so delicate
The only place you can smell the food while you are lay on the beach
The only place take 20 mins waiting for a parking spot
and the only place with beauty and the beauty out of the soul
It's a packed place to relax,
It's designed for the people who wants the beauty and enjoy but don't need take them away from civilization
It's a tourist's town and so far it does a good job to be like the way it is.
So, there is nothing really attract me but appreciation of great human intelligence and city-culture bounded human society.
Then, I moved on, to the next destination on the road.
Good bye blue bird. Good bye, the small beauty amazes big consumerism but not big wisdom.

Vol. 14 On road alone Hurricane Creek and Hat point

Beauty of the wilderness
I slept at many odd place during my life.
I don't mind sleep out side on the ground of no where or just a night in my car.
But there is one thing remind me about humanity---that is always have nice people give others an warm offer to make the world a better place to travel.
On this trip, I met four kindly people, they are Allan, Norma, Bill and Debbie.
Being a wise man who had travel around world 20years ago, Allan taught me many knowledge and stories that interested me. And he gave me the tent he used to travel around the world to warm up my solo trip. I appreciated and admire them all!

Morning Light though the woods
No way out
7000 feet
land of extrem
and the flowers growing there

Stand on the top of the mountain.
I'm a piece of sand from desert ... or a drop of water from ocean... empty and open

Last view when we leave.
I left the last memory about the mountains by a piece of coal.
Last view
The memory will lasts until the rain cry out the sky.

Vol. 13 On road alone Wallowa lake/Joseph

Travel is an rhythm of life

Among the lakes I have been traveled, Wallowa lake is absolutely a very beautiful one, if there is not that many crows I will rate it 9/10
Chill under the shade, watch people come and goes but the lake never changes.
Human are looking for the fun and enjoy by themselves, because the insignificant existence we do proud who we are and what we are doing, even there is no deeper meaning behind it.

On the High way 3 there is a small place sell the world famous Milk shake, I had one, taste ok... But since that's only food supply on a 85 miles high way. I admire the shop.

Joseph: a little town 5miles away from Enterprise, OR

In this little place you will find the old feeling like travel through the time back to Renaissance
age. Sweet and pretty.

Sometimes has something with very unique style

Joseph is a very artistic town, very cute buildings and color combinations

Art is a way people can enjoy their life and maybe for some people they can find the meaning of their lives.

Vol.12 On road alone Pullman

One day, I just wanna walk out, to feel the warm wind and the cold breath from my lung.
One day, I just wanna sit, to feel the beating heart still pun pin.
One day, I just wanna dream, to the land that no one else arrived before and settle in a peace.
So, One day, I am on my way, alone on the road, to where the wind takes.
Inhale and exhale.

Candy ready

Volume 11 Day


A normal day
Enjoy the normal and ordinary
Enjoy the time crawling over piece of metal
Enjoy the water reflexing the blue sky and the bright sunshine
Besides that, it just another day
Same as yours
Just I know one knows
You, know no one knows
