Pines to Palms Highway
Some wags say the camel is a horse designed by a committee. The same might be said for the Jefferson Highway! This long forgotten but now much cherished classic American highway once stretched from the pines of Manitoba, Canada to the sultry palms of New Orleans. Mike Conlin, a map maker by trade, is the president of the Jefferson Highway Association with a passion for reconnecting this legendary thoroughfare. The association痴 inaugural meeting was chronicled in the spring issue 2011 of American Road Magazine.
