WHAT and WHY?: |
Lydia Burris got tired of waiting for the perfect art residency opportunity to come along,
so she decided to make up her own! In mid May 2019, she will take the Amtrak train "California Zephyr" its whole length -
from Chicago, IL. to San Fransisco, California. Over the next 3 weeks she will be interpreting her travel whims using her
sketchbook, camera and blog. She may even throw in some poetry for good measure.
Her destinations over the first 2 weeks are mainly determined by where the couches of her friends are located.
Pinnacles National Park and Joshua Tree National Park are anticipated to be a part of this adventure.
On Week 3 she will say bye to California, meet a friend in New Mexico, visit Meow Wolf, and then travel together
either camping or galavanting back to Indiana.
DURING THE JOURNEY:
Lydia will be sharing her journey on social media and blogger.
