If only Google Maps had implemented their "terrain" feature back then, it wouldn't have taken me quite so long to discover the triangle formed by northwest Philly, Reading, and Allentown. Now, it's one of my favorite day trips: 100-150 miles long, filled with farms, woods, and roads without a lot of traffic.
