travelers vs. tourists

The traveler was active; he went strenuously in search of people, of adventure, of experience. The tourist is passive; he expects interesting things to happen to him. He goes "sight-seeing." 
--Daniel J. Boorstin (1914-2004) Historian and educator.

'Blue' being a tourist, taking in the beautiful sights from the Chestoa View Overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway.  Click here to read more about the overlook and to see a similar photo I took three years ago.
