Driving by Number
Although I've lived in other states, I've not encountered any place in which travel is identified by numbers as much as California. Sure, other places have numbered roads and highways -- but maybe by virtue of the size and density of California, so much travel here involves taking one freeway to another to another. While I was thinking about how to approach this map challenge, I took a road trip with my daughter to Los Angeles from our home north of San Francisco (101 to 1 to 280 to 85 to 101, in case you're wondering) and that caused me to settle on this concept for my piece.
