The shortest distance between two points may be a straight line – or a line segment if you’re a mathematician – but curves are often more interesting. We did a recent travel theme on Leading Lines, and I’ve been staring at the leading lines of Interstate Highways for the last three weeks on my road trip across America, so here are a few curves to shake things up.
Croton Dam in New York state was an unexpected surprise which I happened upon last June. I had only seen it from the base of the structure, but when I paid a second visit to it just before leaving New York, I walked along the bridge at the top of the dam. The reservoir was smooth as glass and filled to the brim with water, which was tipping over the spillway and tumbling down the stone tiers in a blaze of white.
During a visit to Washington DC I visited the US Botanic Gardens. Tucked away in the corner of the conservatory lay a little terrarium, bursting with greenery and reflecting the towering conservatory windows.
Driving through the Badlands, surrounded by huge outcrops of shaggy, ragged, tattered rocks, I spied a solitary hill along the highway, flaunting its perfect curves.
