Views along Route 66 day 1
With the traffic I needed to keep my eyes on the road. I had a heads up on things to not miss.
What! That's a hot dog in his hands. This was erected in 1966 for a hot dog stand. It sure gets your attention.
I am familiar with US 30, Lincoln Highway because I traveled on it during my childhood. This road was dedicated in 1913. It runs from Times Square in New York City to Lincoln Park in San Francisco nearly 3400 miles in length. Now you would probably take Interstate 80. I have driven on that too.
In Joliet both highways intersect.
This is the inside of the Rialto Theater in Joliet. I love these beautiful theaters from the 1920s.
Illinois is the prairie state. It is natural for grasses to grow here. This is why crop farming is so successful. I am getting out of the city and suburbs. I will be going by many farms. This area was established in 1996 and covers 19,000 acres. The United States Forest Service manages this area.
