Over the past few summers I have tackled the National Road, the Oregon Trail, and I've motorcycled to the Arctic Circle (Yukon) and Alaska. In the summer of 2013 I tackled Illinois Route 1. Starting on the south side of Chicago, Illinois 1 is the longest state highway, meandering south until it ends in Cave In Rock, Illinois, on the banks of the Ohio River. Once again, I operated with the assistance of Verizon Wireless, using an Apple iPhone and Nokia Lumia 928 to make all photographs.

On May 23, 1845, Elizabeth “Betsey” Reed became the first and only woman hanged by the great State of Illinois. Over 20,000 people are reported to have attended her hanging. (photo made with a Nokia Lumia 928)
