Dear Prudence open up your eyes

Dear Prudence see the sunny skies

The wind is low the birds will sing

That you are part of everything

Dear Prudence won't you open up your eyes?

Dear Prudence, won't you come out to play

Dear Prudence, greet the brand new day

The sun is up, the sky is blue

It's beautiful and so are you

Dear Prudence won't you come out to play!

Look around round round


This was taken a few days ago passing through the Green River and Rock Springs area of Wyoming on I-80.

In the Trucking across America photo essay.

    Your photos are amazing. I have always wanted to travel with a trucker from coast to coast with my camera to see the whole country, But i know that it will never happen with my job. So now I can look at your images to get a feel of a truckers view. I have always wanted to jump a train like the hobos and ride from coast to coast with my camera.
