Cabot Trail, which is long overdue for replacement in some locations.
|This section of the Cabot Trail pre-dates me, and I'm over half a century old. They are working on it, but it's extremely difficult to drive an Interstate over the likes of this. In some locations, I could not exceed 30 mph. Furthermore with the edges of the road in total collapse, I had to treat it as a one-lane road here and there. Passenger cars have an easier time with the likes of this.|
|Our dog certainly was pleased to get a break from the rough roads.|
