My New Blog: 40 Degrees North

For the last decade, home has been somewhere around 40 degrees north latitude. 

Glenwood Springs, Colo., is at 39.53 degrees north. Grand Junction, Colo., is at roughly 39 degrees. Denver is 39.7 degrees. Fort Collins, Colo., is 40.5 degrees. Today, I work in New York City — 40.725 degrees — and I live in Westchester County, New York., which is at 41.28 degrees.

So, my mean latitude is roughly 40 degrees. 

As my previous blog and my photography website both imply, I'm a pretty restless person. I've explored every county in Colorado and New Mexico. I've visited every state in the contiguous United States. I've been to more than half of all the national parks, and I love venturing into obscure places in major cities as much as I love exploring obscure wilderness areas and back roads by bike, by car and by train. 

I moved to New York with my partner last year, opening up an entirely new region of North America to explore. And so this blog is about my wanderings from my home base somewhere near 40 degrees north. Join me!
