States traversed: Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia
US Route 84 runs east-west cross the southeastern United States, and continues west to northern New Mexico before curling northward into southern Colorado in its last breath. The eastern end of US Route 84 is at Interstate 95 in the town of Midway, Georgia; this is just south of Savannah near the Atlantic coastline. From there, US Route 84 runs westerly through southern Georgia, southern Alabama, southern Mississippi, and upstate Louisiana. From there, US Route 84 cuts west across the middle latitude of Texas, before stopping halfway through the state to turn northwesterly to Abilene, Texas; Lubbock, Texas; and Clovis, New Mexico. In New Mexico, US Route 84 continues winding northwesterly through Santa Fe to end in Pagosa Springs, Colorado, at US Route 160.
My photo for US Route 84 was taken in Waco, Texas, on an offramp from Interstate 35 northbound. I was on the way home from my massive western detour into Texas, part of the October 2014 trip to the Gulf Coast region. The sign assembly in this photo was discovered serendipitously; I wasn't planning US Route 84 until a later trip to New Mexico (which I still haven't done yet!). Back to the nationwide main page.
