What is it about a scenic route that makes it truly scenic? Is it what you encounter while traveling along the road? Is it the expectation of what you will see? Or is it what you remember long after the trip is over?
I set out to explore these questions after discovering a small, out-of-the-way route beginning in Salem, N.J., and running south on Route 658 toward Bridgeton. I realized I had never explored this area of New Jersey, and I was intrigued by its proximity to Philadelphia.
