For a long time, the book sat gathering dust on our coffee table, but in 2001 we took Brent and Ben on a driving trip to the western United States and put the book to use, veering off the interstate to follow the more scenic routes suggested by Reader's Digest. The story of that trip will be for a later post and is more appropriate for Brent or Ben to tell.
In the years since, we have used The Most Scenic Drives in America to explore New England, the South and other roads in the West. On our recent trip to Colorado, New Mexico and Utah, we once again took the road less travelled. Here are some pictures from our trip.
