This book is part of my ongoing Blue Highways series. Blue highways are the small, winding, and less traveled roads printed in blue on vintage road maps. Taken at a leisurely pace, these highways provide an interesting view of the passing landscape, a perspective that is missed when traveling major roadways. Blue Highway #22 began with a photo of a country road in southern New Jersey. Other images are from other "blue highway" trips.
