On Monday I had 172 visitors, stomping the previous (year-to-date) record of 148. Then on Tuesday I had 186. I’d been wanting to re-add my daily visitors bar graph to the site, and having a surge in visitors helped convince me to do it last night. You can see it at the bottom of the navigation section on the lefthand side of the page.
One reason for the increase in the visitor count is that previously, I didn’t have my visitor-logger on my photos pages. I added it last week, and discovered that I was getting a few dozen hits per day from people searching for things like beefalo pictures, pistachio insect, and nice scenery, and those search-terms lead them directly to the photo-sets bypassing the main page and the visitor logger. So it’s not actually a few dozen new visitors, it’s just that they weren’t being logged before.

Update: AND, the size of the map-image on the screen isn’t fixed (and tiny) like Mapquest’s is. If you put your browser into fullscreen mode (press the F11 key), the map is HUGE. These are the best map features of all time, and yet they seem so obvious... I almost can’t believe no one has done this before.
And last but not least, why does "not at all" mean "not even a little"?
