We are driving from NYC to St. Albans on Saturday, leaving at around 9 am. The mapping directions I get seem to offer two choices that take roughly the same amount of time (@6.5 hrs.): north on I-87 in NY all the way up, crossing into VT through Alburgh and south to St. Albans; or I-87 up to Glenn Falls, then 149/4 to VT and 22A/7 north to Burlington, then I-89 to St. Albans. Any information about which is more scenic, likely traffic volume, hidden problems that MapQuest/Google Maps don't recognize, or other helpful info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all in advance.
