There you have it:  a complete road trip of all of the 50 United States.  Those who live in the United States, do you agree with Road and Track in the selection of the most scenic parts of your state?  When it got to my state, I thought of several other roads that I thought they should have picked, although that one is a nice one, there are others that I think are better in my state.  Maybe they couldn't see all of the whole state?  Who knows.  It's a big country, and it is very beautiful.  All these photos made me realize that we live in a very beautiful world. 

Once again, thanks to Road and Track for putting this pictorial on the internet.  How many of these places have you been to, and recognize.  We have many places to take our camera, right?
