These are from the rest stop on the border of Pennsylvania and New York:
... and here's the familiar landscape of the St. Lawrence Valley, on the New York side of the border:
Quite a trip! It was interesting to see the landscapes change and winter gradually reappear as I made my way east and north. I think it was around 5500 km, a bit longer this route (it was just short of 5100 in the opposite direction last September), but around 200 or 250 km of that was the side trips I did to the Grand Canyon, and to the caves in Virginia. So the difference in total between the two routes would be around 200 km or so, which isn't a big deal, especially since the southern route is easier, if a bit longer.
