On the road from California to North Carolina: a photo essay


When you’re looking to get a sense of true Americana and see the country, there’s nothing better than a good road trip. Our belief was proven while perusing around Instagram and we stumbled upon Dan King’s gallery. He was in the middle of his trip from Arroyo Grande, California to Greensboro, South Carolina. We got a chance to catch up with Dan about his trip and share some of his favorite images.

We have to warn you, these pictures you’re about to see may lead to an increased sense of wanderlust.

“I am from California and I work coast to coast. An assignment came about for me in North Carolina so I purchased a Greyhound Bus ticket to travel across this vast beautiful land,” Dan said. “I was very excited that I was going to be on Greyhound and I’d get to witness the views along the way to share with you.”

“I thank Greyhound for providing a wonderful experience in a timely fashion. My ticket is a round trip and I can’t wait to see it all again. I hope you enjoy these images and you decide to experience an awesome trip like the one I had or wherever your road my lead you.” – Dan King
