Scenes Along the Road

We have been driving the roads of America for years, actually for decades! And we have accumulated literally tens of thousands of travel photos.

Many are posted on this website on pages dealing with individual national parks, popular city destinations, road trips, museums and historical sites.

But there are more photos, many more. On this page we present some random photos from other travel destinations that might be of interest to our readers. While some photos are recent, others are classics from our archives from many years ago.

On this journey we visit some out-of-the-way places like Icy Strait, Paradox and Luckenbach. Scenes along the road range from Key West to Ketchikan, and from the Pacific Coast Highway to Pennsylvania ... and many points in between!
