carefree highway, let me slip away on you

I will be driving cross country, leaving from Connecticut. I will be traveling in the Northern part of the US and making my way to Oregon. Do any of you lovelies have any suggestions for highly recommended scenic routes between here and there. If you do, post 'em here or email me.

Thanks,

Deb (Punky)

WOW - haven't checked in here in a while - good for you, Punkster! Follow that dream - and swing by Sacramento on your way (well, not really on the way, but still...)

I hear Glacier Park is a sight to see - but not too sure where it is...

"It's time to move on, time to get going
What lies ahead, I have no way of knowing
But under my feet, baby, grass is growing
It's time to move on, it's time to get going

Broken skyline, movin' through the airport
She's an honest defector
Conscientious objector
Now her own protector

Broken skyline, which way to love land
Which way to something better
Which way to forgiveness
Which way do I go"
