Project: Route 309
Back in August, when I drove home to visit my parents in Northeastern PA for a few days, I made the decision to forsake the turnpike and follow Route 309. I didn’t realize then this was going to become an exploration experience and the birth of a new personal project for me.
I guess, since I’ve had the opportunity to make a few more trips up and back in the last few months, my Route 309 Project has been born.
Every time I drive this route now, though, my eyes are open. I’m doing some exploration that I didn’t expect.And seeing some scenes that are visually appealing to me.
The final destination of this drive – which my daughter calls “the slow way” because it does add a good 30-45 minutes on to the overall travel time, is the Wyoming Valley. When I was a kid, I crossed the Cross-Valley Expressway probably a million times without giving it a thought.
Now I’m always trying to looks for something interesting – like low-lying fog – and get a good shot.
More from this Route 309 Project project to come…
