Took a different route from Florida to West Virginia and ended up on Route 23, Country Music Highway. Beautiful natural scenery as well as interesting historical information along the way. Will definitely use this route again.

Nerve wrecking road is what it should be called. Twists and turns out of absolutely nowhere. Don't drive it in the dark.
