Millions of Americans will hit the road this week to spend Thanksgiving with friends and family in other parts of the country. Some will be lucky enough to travel down byways and scenic routes to reach their destination. Others will have to be patient as they slog through heavy highway traffic with thousands of other cars, grateful to finally reach the turkey dinner and loved ones at the end of their journey. Whatever road you take, may it take you safely there and back this holiday week.
Enjoy some scenic views from roads and highways across the United States selected from the Carol M. Highsmith Archive:
