Welcome to BenWanderin.com! I’ll be using this space to share thoughts, images and maps from my travels around the American West.
Content here will roughly fall into several categories: current reports from places I visit (either with my family, my friends or just myself), musings on remarkable trips from the past, and random thoughts about the current state of the West (with intrusions by politics, climate change and other subjects).
One thing you’ll notice is the use of embedded maps or satellite imagery in each post. During my time writing content for Colorado-based DigitalGlobe, I realized the power that geospatial imagery has to help readers more clearly visualize the interaction between people and place. So for example, the header image shown above was taken at the location shown in the Google map below.
Much more to come. Thanks for joining me on my wanderings!
