Becket, Mashachusetts

The West Becket Cemetery includes the graves of Revolutionary War soldiers. The headstones, tilted this way and that by time, seem to mimic the surrounding hills and Berkshire Mountains of western Massachusetts.

Albany, New York

This is as urban as it gets along Route 20 in New York, as it passes through the state capital of Albany.

Modern-day Albany is a far cry from its early days. It was first settled as the Dutch trading posts of Fort Nassau (1614) and lays claim to being the longest continually chartered city in the United States (chartered in 1686).
