Thanks to social media, we get to go on our friends' vacations, in a sense. They snap pictures and put them on Instagram or Facebook, and we get to see them right away.
Pete Miller of Grants Pass put a real twist on that process when he hiked the Oregon Coast Trail this summer.
He snapped pictures all right... and sent them to artist Kristen O'Neill. She then set about painting the image, with a new painting every day along the route.
