Thankee kindly. All I could 'see', so-to-speak, when I saw the prompt/theme were the stretches of roads that people don't/can't use anymore for whatever reason. There's a stretch of old highway near my grandparent's place in Wyoming that was abandoned when I-80 was put in, and Hwy 5 in Iowa was re-routed between Pella and Knoxville when Red Rock Dam was put in. And I've seen other examples from Maine to Washington of roads that were obviously once well-traveled but had fallen by the wayside. It always makes me feel a little sorry for them.
