Road Trips

My wife and I used to live in Falls Church, Virginia, just inside the DC beltway. Now we are retired and living in Jensen Beach, Florida.

We love to take Saturday road trips. They are a great excuse to escape the noise and stench of civilization and explore the countryside. With that in mind, I’m going to list a few of the routes we have discovered and hope others might like to retrace our steps and share some of their own photographs and experiences.

As a general rule, I try to limit any one-day road trip to three hours of driving, one way. After food breaks, pit stops and time poking around with the cameras, it makes for an eight to ten hour run. None of the following trips are longer and some are much shorter.

More of these are coming soon.

In the name of convenience, I’m going to start each of these suggested runs from a Washington, DC beltway exit.

Each of these runs start in Jensen Beach, Florida.
