I miss driving on those back roads. I prefer to drive back road's to driving down freeways. I once drove from Ellensburg to exit 38 on I-90 by driving the back roads. I did have to touch the freeway every once in a awhile. But for the most part it was dirt and gravel. But I had the help of a good map. But you can only drive that way in the summer time. In the winter it's all covered with about 6' of snow.
