I stumbled upon this quote. . .
The interstate highway system is a wonderful thing. It makes it possible to go coast to coast without seeing anything or meeting anybody. CHARLES KURALT, A LIFE ON THE ROAD
How true that is. The interstate will get you where you want to go a lot faster, but it's the boring way to go.
I'm getting spring fever and yearn to go on road trips. Down our country roads to sights unseen from the interstate.
I haven't traveled this year, so I'm posting pictures of places visited in the past.
Cool tunnels along an old road.
Berdines 5 & Dime provides you with a trip into the past.
Coal tipples with loaded railroad cars rumbling past.
John Henry . . . folklore, legend or real person. What do you think?
An impressive mountain of rock jutting upwards toward the sky.
Slowing down a little and taking it easy.
Have you been to any of these sights before? Take a guess and tell me where they are.
When you go on vacation this year, take a trip off the beaten path, away from the fast interstates.
Take a country road, you'll be glad you did.
