Route 66 - Illinois
Here are some more photos from our travels through Illinois - pretty much everything south of Chicago in the state. Josh came to fetch us from Chicago Sunday morning, and brought us down to their house where we had a Route 66 kick off party! And then, on Monday morning, Josh, Amy, Andy and I began the road trip as a foursome.
First up, Cazenovia, Illinois. This is where Josh and Amy live, and are photos of their backyard, actually. These were taken not even an hour before we hit the road in our rented Ford Explorer. How very different than where I live!
Our first stop on the Mother Road was in the town of Springfield, Illinois. There were lots of cool things to see, but unfortunately, the town of Springfield apparently does not believe in opening anything on Mondays. So we had to stick to looking at the outsides of establishments before moving on.
And a lone Holga photo from Shea's in Springfield to round out the XPan shots:
Next up: Missouri! Stay tuned...
