Suffering from industritis? Driving through a petroleum refinery on Louisiana 627:

That looks like such a cool place to drive, unless the oil refineries there blow up somehow.


Spring wildflowers in the median of US 19, north of Spring Hill, Florida:

Actually, that's pretty far north of Weeki Wachee. I'd almost think it was close to Citrus County.

Is it bad that I clinched I-10 in New Mexico last year and have already forgotten that those towns existed?   :banghead:

Thatís a throwback for me seeing a storm cloud on Mount Ord.  I used to have to commute to Show Low a couple times a week and usually took AZ 87 coupled with AZ 260.  There was a couple instances it was snowing on Mount Ord but clear or raining on both ends.

For those who have driven on Alaska's Glenn Highway towards Valdez, you get an absolutely gorgeous view of Mt. Drum as you approach Glenallen. It's so dramatic, the mountain appears on the horizon and slowly gets larger as you drive towards it. The highway is visually centered and no matter how many times I've done this drive, I just can't help but love the view every time.
