Today was the day we've been anticipating for weeks: visiting the Taj Mahal! We stepped outside the hotel lobby and were greeted with extreme cold (for India) and dense fog. Because of the limited visibility, our guide Adil told us we should postpone the main attraction until later in the morning.

Everyone was up early packing their bikes and mingling in the guest room of the Hampton Inn - it was a sea of green shirts. Our meeting started a few minutes late, but no one was in a huge rush as we only had 70 miles to travel to the end of Route 66.

For the past five years, I've driven all over the country documenting America's rest stops. With drive-thrus and gas stations at nearly every exit, rest areas are losing the fight and are vanishing in nearly every state. Shortly after moving to Texas from California seven years ago, I was struck by a recurring sight - the humble rest stop. The more of these roadside parks I saw, the more inspired I became - there were tables shaded by faux oil rigs, teepees and wagon wheels, and geometric shapes echoing classic mid-century design.

After zipping by that line and getting inside, I made my way up to the bar. What?! $15 for a watered-down Jack and Coke? Good thing my wife's feet were killing her in those five-inch heels because she was ready to go. Yep, we were in there for a whole 15 minutes. Good times.

The reason I'm writing this today is because of an article in Salon today. The article was written by Eric Lutz after a 1,200-mile trip where he visited the home districts of Michele Bachmann, Paul Ryan, and Steve King. The article is an interesting piece of writing, especially in the responses it generated in the comments.
