all of the roads I ride are stone covered.(or should I say I try to ride ALL the stone covered roads )

This spring they seemed to put a large dose of loose stones on most of the roads, but the roads that carry more traffic are finally becoming hard packed as traffic compresses the stone into the earth.
A couple months ago some of the roads had 3" of loose stone .
But even RT 233 is a beautiful ride.
