Road Trip Area Index (60) Top Level

I have found it very useful to be able to pull up a GMap that shows all the campgrounds, or nearby peaks along a highway. For example, in a trip to California, pull up a GMap that shows all the campgrounds.

The key to this are certain long thin areas along the highways. Typically a 20 km fringe on either side of the highway, and several hundred kilometers long.
  As of 2020, a new GMap Form function has been added to the area page to allow these displays. Here is a list of such "highway areas"

  1. Highway 395 Road Trip Area (20 km)
     Stretches from the Columbia River down past Reno Nevadaall the way down to Mono Lake.

  2. Highway 101
