FLORIDA TRIP
Interstate 85 North Carolina (Page One)

Interstate 85 is a busy interstate that sees lots of truck traffic as it goes from Montgomery, Alabama, to Portsmouth, Virginia. The highway goes through the cities of Montgomery, Atlanta, Greenville, Spartanburg, Charlotte, Greensboro, and Portsmouth. On Day Seven of the Florida Trip, I drove Interstate 85 from Interstate 75 in north Atlanta to Charlotte, North Carolina, and on Day Nine, I drove Interstate 85 from Charlotte to Interstate 285 in northeast Atlanta.

This page covers pictures of Interstate 85 taken on Day Seven. To see pictures from Day Nine, click here.
