  • For this week, it’s the Cherohala Skyway and more. Some of the handsomest mountain landscapes east of the Rockies are in the far western reaches of North Carolina.  I’m talking high ridges with summits above 6,000 feet, rushing streams ideal for fishing or whitewater rafting, sparkling waterfalls and dense hardwood forests that wear dazzling colors […]

  • This week’s road trip is a short one – just 44 miles on Utah SR 128.  It’s short, yeah, but this is a special road trip that packs a big scenic wallop.  It’s one of the finest scenic drives in North America. Our post, as a result, is somewhat light on text and heavy on visuals. […]

  • This week Road Trips with Tom takes you to the heart of the Canadian Rockies for a once-in-a-lifetime cruise on the Icefields Parkway.  I’ve probably driven more North American highways than just about anyone, and I’d vote for the Icefields Parkway as the continent’s most scenic drive.  If you put this road trip at the top […]

  • It could be argued that most people don’t enjoy driving.  What may have been a diversion for our parents or grandparents – or, admit it, you, too – is now a noxious chore, much of the time.  It’s gotten so bad that people have started longing for self-driving cars.  You’re no longer one of those […]

  • This week, our cyber road trip takes us about two hours north of San Francisco to Fort Ross State Historic Park.  A Russian colony in California?  Da! Here, Tsarist Russia established a settlement that operated from 1812 to 1841.  Several of the buildings have been restored or rebuilt, and you can enter them and try to […]
