Wanna get away?
It might surprise you, but even with our country’s four million miles(!) of public roads there are still places in the continental United States where you won’t find a soul.
Earlier this week, USA Today highlighted a few such spaces “where man himself is a visitor who does not remain.” It’s an inspiring list.
Perhaps most surprising, is there are still places you can go in this country of ours where those four million miles of public roads haven’t - and won’t - ever touch. A few years ago, the Fort Collins Science Center created a map of the United States that, through various shades of green, blue, purple and yellow, demonstrates where one can go to truly get away.
So if you’re feeling hemmed in by the growing world around us, don’t despair. Just look at all that green.
