As my road trip around the US plunges into its final stretch, I wanted to pay tribute to the unsung hero of the journey… the great open road. One of the biggest ‘wow’ moments I had on my journey from Seattle to Boston was when our car crested a hill along I-90 and I suddenly understood why Montana was called Big Sky Country.
On the Utah leg of the trip, Highway 24 proved so spectacular I couldn’t limit myself to just one photo of this wondrous and at times unnerving road.
In Ireland, you can’t beat a long drive along the winding road that leads across the bleakly beautiful Featherbeds.
Last but not least, a small road winding through Ciudad Vieja, on the way to climbing Pacaya Volcano in Guatemala. A parade passed along the road in front of us and when the road opened up again, it was strewn with petals and cut grass.
