Arlington, Virginia, to Williamstown, Massachusetts - March 21, 2007

The basic route: US 29 through DC and up to I-70, then I-695 to US 1 to I-476 to I-80 to I-287 to I-87 to I-787 to NY 7 to NY 22 to NY/VT 346 to US 7 and home.

In Arlington, Virginia. [Crop/Zoom: 793x586]

Getting ready to cross into DC. Good luck following US 29 once across the Key Bridge, though. [Crop/Zoom: 1004x1386]

Through the Georgetown area. [Larger: 1744x1308]

Into downtown DC. [Crop/Zoom: 575x603]

Tracked down US 29 again. [Crop/Zoom: 297x697]

At the beltway along Maryland 97 (lost US 29 somewhere). [Crop/Zoom: 1215x779]

Found the way back to 29 in Maryland. [Crop/Zoom: 529x457]

US 29 is being upgraded and is now a decent alternate to I-95 and the Baltuimore-Washington Parkway. [Larger: 1744x1308]

[Crop/Zoom: 1712x990]

Coming up on the northern end of US 29. It goes beyond US 40... [Crop/Zoom: 1197x1001] I-70. [Crop/Zoom: 475x540]

[Crop/Zoom: 1665x675]

I-70 mile markers continue inside the beltway. [Crop/Zoom: 254x797]

[Crop/Zoom: 1183x479]

Until it ends at this park and ride. A 2100+ mile highway seems to deserve a more interesting end. [Crop/Zoom: 3102x1283]

Signs in the park and ride. [Crop/Zoom: 504x668]

[Crop/Zoom: 918x711]

[Crop/Zoom: 1226x765]

Pretty far north for a Waffle House.

Just some unusual numbers. [Crop/Zoom: 604x529]

[Crop/Zoom: 596x833]

US 1 crosses the Susquehanna here, but there seems to be a construction project. [Larger: 1744x1308]

[Larger: 1744x1308]

After a 3 or 4 minute delay, the northbound traffic gets to cross. [Larger: 1744x1308]

[Crop/Zoom: 2155x940]

[Crop/Zoom: 471x575]

This looks like a promising lunch exit. [Crop/Zoom: 872x1158]

It wasn't, but it had this unusual warning sign. [Crop/Zoom: 536x561]

And it had Villanova University. [Larger: 1744x1308]

Back on 476, coming up on I-76. [Crop/Zoom: 1476x1076]
