Friday Photo Post: Driving on Gas House Pike

Gas House PikeI mentioned the winding roads of Frederick County in an earlier post. We discovered several while we lived there, and one of my favorites is Gas House Pike. The road goes from New London Road, just off Hwy 75 in New Market, to downtown Frederick.

The only bad part of the drive is the lack of shoulder so you can pull over and walk for a bit. This was especially disappointing in the autumn, when the trees were blazing in bright colors, begging for a closer look.

There is a slide show on YouTube with more photographs, including shots of New Market.
