Interstates

A while ago I was going through my books and I found a Reader's Digest book about National Parks and other natural wonders in the United States. When I opened the book, a map fell out. As I looked at it, I wondered, "Where are the interstates?" Something I have taken for granted all my life hasn't been around for that long. In fact, for many people living today, the interstates did not exist when they were born.

When I drive across the United States, I am also amazed by this system of highways. I marvel at all the planning and work that went into the construction of such a great undertaking. Most people don't think about this as they drive the interstates, but I do especially when I drive cross country. I am so glad this highway system makes my trip easier and faster than it would be if the system weren't there. There is no better way to see the beauty of this nation than to travel the interstate highways. (Photo of I-25 in Colorado taken 2007.)
