I wanted to post a picture of an unusual design feature of the Chain of Rocks Bridge but I'm going to have to go back and find a better viewpoint. For now, we have this marker on the eastern side in Illinois. Route 66, made most famous by St. Louisan Chuck Berry, is no longer an official U.S. highway designation. But as the song had it
Well it goes from St Louis, Joplin, Missouri
Oklahoma City looks ooh, so pretty
You'll see Amarillo and Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff, Arizona don't forget Winona
Kingsman, Barstow, San Bernadino
The original route ran within a moderate walk of my home.. Now it's something to remember and perhaps make a buck off.
