Do you ever notice the road images at the top of this page, just above my blog’s name? If you click your browser’s refresh button, eventually you will see them all. But today there will be no need for that: I’m going to share all 13 images with you and tell you where these roads are located.
I’m doing this on the occasion of adding a new road image to the rotation: this one. I made it on my October road trip. It’s State Road 45 in Brown County, Indiana.
The rotating header images are a feature of the WordPress blog template I use. (It’s the Ryu theme, in case you’re curious.) Using road photos I’ve taken, I shrink and crop them to 350×150 pixels, upload them, and link them to the header. The template and WordPress take it from there.
Here, then, are the rest of the roads in rotation.
