Ever dream about flying cross-country in a small plane, low and slow to take in the scenery? Then, recalling what the hardships must have been for the early settlers, bouncing along in covered wagons, saddle weary on horseback or just trudging along, mile after mile over some of the scenery shown in the following photo feature?

This pilot flew from Placerville, California to Wisconsin to attend the Oshkosh Air Venture show. He took some great photos along the way.

His brief captions below each photo adds a special touch to his beautiful color shots.
