Sound Journal

These are sonic snapshots of the travels I took through the United States and Canada in the summer and fall of 2010. I traveled mainly by train on the Amtrak rail system, but also by bus and car. The links move chronologically backwards. Some of the sounds you will here are brief moments with very specific sounds; others are longer and give you time to experience the ‘soundscape’ I was hearing. Enjoy!
