Road Trip: Illinois Lincoln Highway 2011/09/08 – 2011/09/09

This 179 mile National Scenic Byway runs from the east in Lynwood and leaves the state at the Mississippi River in Fulton, Illinois. Follows U.S. Route 30 and Illinois Routes 2, 31 and 38.  http://www.drivelincolnhighway.com/

The Lincoln Highway was the United States’ first all-weather, coast-to-coast, automobile highway. It’s easy to follow by the red, white, and blue “Historic Route" signs.

Lincoln Highway Signs through the Years…

這是一段僅存的 original hard-packed route,車子經過時揚起一陣塵土,完全是 early 2oth-century 的景象。

This is the one of the Illinois Lincoln Highway Coalition presents 16 Interpretive Gazebos along the Lincoln Highway. Also there are 41 murals will be completed in 2012.

p.s. What is a National Scenic Byway? A National Scenic Byway is a road recognized by the United States Department of Transportation for its archeological, cultural, historic, natural, recreational, and/or scenic qualities.
