American Auto Trail-Old Spanish Trail (Quincy to Chattahoochee, FL)

U.S. Highway 90 begins its journey west at its eastern terminus, the Atlantic Ocean.  From here, the highway travels across Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and most of Texas, before ending in the small West Texas town of Van Horn.  Stretching the full east-west breadth of Florida, U.S. 90 parallels the original Old Spanish Trail and the Pensacola-St. Augustine Road, early trails connecting Spanish settlements and missions as early as the 1600’s.  Up until the 1920’s, prior to the numerical designation this road currently carries, the highway was known as the Old Spanish Trail, and was named as such in the Auto Trails map by Rand McNally Company.  This video travels a segment of the highway from Quincy (just west of Tallahassee) to Chattahoochee (standing on the Apalachicola River and the line between the Eastern and Central time zones).
