July 22 - December 3, 2003: 

This was our "Grand Circle' trip.  We went north from home to meet Highway 2 which crosses USA.  We entered Canada at Sault Ste. Marie at the Great Lakes.  We crossed Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and out to Prince Edward Island.  We spent several weeks in New England in time for the fall colors.  Then we went south to Florida before we headed west and home.


No other cross-country route takes in the variety and extremity of landscape than US Highway-2
