My Journey Through Nature

What happens when the world suddenly stops as we know it? In May 2020, as the planet plunged into a global pandemic, my life took an unexpected turn. What began as a journey forced by necessity turned into a profound exploration that led me to delve into the most remote and beautiful places and my inner world.

As I traveled over 75,000 miles along the lonely roads of the United States, a new and uncertain landscape unfolded before my eyes. Amid moments of pain, loneliness, and transformation, I found solace in the gentle caress of waves on empty beaches. I shivered beneath star-filled skies and in ice-covered deserts. I discovered the subtle hues of dew-wrapped mornings and the most beautiful birds hidden in mangrove sanctuaries.

What’s Inside?

Despite having over forty years of experience in photography, my cameras could capture lights and colors. Still, they couldn’t convey the emotions that these paths evoked.

That’s why, in WONDER, my images are not alone; my words and my stories accompany them. The book features nearly 300 high-resolution photos and hundreds more in the digital galleries of each chapter.

    My Route

    Although I cannot name all the places I visited on this map, it can give you an idea of the vast territories I covered.

    My trip began in May 2020 in Potomac, Maryland (A), and I first drove to Saint Petersburg, Florida (B). Then, I headed north again in the fall through the Appalachian Mountains to Acadia National Park in Maine (C).

    I returned to Florida for the holidays, and on January 1, 2021, I left Saint Petersburg (B). After crossing Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and New Mexico, I arrived in Kanab, Utah (D).

    From Kanab, Utah (D), I went to Salt Lake City (E), where I visited Antelope Island, Utah Lake State Park, Bonneville Salt Flats, and drove around the state visiting Zion National Park, Bryce National Park, Capitol Reef National Park, Arches National Park, and Canyonlands National Park.
    I went to Arizona from Utah, where I visited Horseshoe Bend, Rainbow Valley, Wire Canyon, Fire Canyon, and the Grand Canyon. Then, I headed toward California through Death Valley National Park. I drove to southern California and went to San Diego (F).

    I visited Joshua Tree National Park, Anza Borrego State Park, and the Salton Sea. In the central part of the state, I went to Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks, San Luis National Wildlife Refuge, and then to Yosemite National Park. I took Route One, passing through Big Sur, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area in San Francisco, Point Reyes National Park, Redwood National Park, Lassen Volcanic National Park, and Lava Beds National Monument in Northern California.

    I crossed the border into Oregon, where I visited Crater Lake National Park, John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, Lewis & Clark National Historical Park, Columbia River Gorge, Silver Falls State Park, and the enchanted beaches of the Pacific Coast.
    From Oregon, I went to Washington State. I crossed the border to Seattle (G) across the coast. I visited Billy Frank Jr. Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge and three national parks, Olympic National Park, North Cascades National Park, and Mount Rainier National Park.

    Going to Montana, I crossed Diablo Lake. I visited Glacier National Park, and from there, I went to Northern New York through the states of North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.
    I visited Niagara Falls, Letchworth Falls, Taughannock Falls, and Rainbow Falls in New York.

    I closed the first leg of my trip in the same place where I started it, in Maryland (A), after driving sixteen months and 74,000 thousand miles.
