Williamstown, Massachusetts to Frederick, Maryland - May 20, 2005

The ride down an unusual route: MA/NY 2, I-787, I-87, US 209, I-80, PA 33, US 22, I-78, PA 100, US 222, US 30, US 15. Interesting ride, but too much traffic and construction.

Getting on the Thruway in Albany at Exit 23. [2048x1536]

Passing the Berkshire Spur on the Thruway. [2048x1536]

Off Exit 19 in Kingston. For some reason neither I-587 nor US 209 is mentioned on signs on the Thruway. [2048x1536]

Right into the Catskill Park. [2048x1536]

Onto US 209 for the next few hours. [2048x1536]


A 213. This is in Stone Ridge, New York. [2048x1536]

One of the many stone buildings in this part of New York. [2048x1536]

Scenery along US 209 in New York. [2048x1536]

A truck turns onto Ulster County 3. [2048x1536]

It's the western terminus of US 44 in Kerhonkson, NY. [2048x1536]

US 44 East begins here. [2048x1536]

Wawarsing, a town in Ulster County along US 209. [2048x1536]

And then Ellenville. [2048x1536]

Ellenville. [2048x1536]

BY 52 is here in Ellenville. [2048x1536]

Line painting caused some delays, but they were much worse northbound. [2048x1536]

Scenery a bit further south. [2048x1536]

Now into Wurtsboro. [2048x1536]

We cross NY 17, one day to become I-86. [2048x1536]

Into Orange County. [2048x1536]

There's a town called Cuddebackville. [2048x1536]

There is a 211. [2048x1536]

And then Godeffroy. [2048x1536]

And Huguenot. [2048x1536]

And US 6 in Port Jervis. [2048x1536]

Still in Port Jervis, the "42" that completes the collection of 2-digit numbers. [2048x1536]

The bridge across the Delaware into Pennsylvania. [2048x1536]

Crossing the Delaware. The New Jersey "high point" marker is on the top of that hill, but right behind the bridge support. [2048x1536]

Lunch stop in Matamoras, Pennsylvania. [2048x1536]


Soon across I-84 on US 209. [2048x1536]


This is in Milford, Pennsylvania. [2048x1536]

Passing the bridge to NJ. [2048x1536]


Then into the Delaware Water Gap NRA. [2048x1536]

There is a 739. [2048x1536]

And a 447 in the Stroudsburg area. [2048x1536]

Too blurred. They're I-80 overhead signs. [2048x1536]

US 209 and I-80 in Stroudsburg. [2048x1536]

On PA 33 in eastern PA. [2048x1536]


And then onto US 22. [2048x1536]

And eventually onto US 222 for a while. [2048x1536]


US 222 scenery. [2048x1536]

It's also Amish country. [2048x1536]


One of the 4-lane sections of US 222. [2048x1536]


In the Reading area. [2048x1536]

Reading, PA. [2048x1536]



Just some numbers in a construction zone. [2048x1536]

Pa Turnpike to Denver? Sure. [2048x1536]



A bad sign. Yet another painfully slow merge to squeeze through a construction zone. [2048x1536]

Lancaster, PA. [2048x1536]

In York, PA. [2048x1536]


And now out along the Lincoln Highway toward Gettysburg. [2048x1536]
