Here are a few shots from a visit last week to Illinois and my hometown, Alton, on the Mississippi River:
Retired journalist, editor and foreign correspondent -- and a touring cyclist since 1994. The original purpose of this blog was to chronicle a cross-country bicycle trip that began Sept. 20, 2009, in San Diego, and ended Nov. 21, 2009, in St. Augustine, Fla. To see an account of that journey, go to the "Archives" column below, click on "September 2009" and view posts beginning on Sept. 20. Previous posts are about preparations for the trip. Now that that journey is finished, this blog continues to offer musings on bicycling, books, writers, Americana, Texana, travels, trivia and other stuff that pops into my head.
