Route 66 in Atlanta, Illinois
When I was doing the A to Z Challenge last month, my letter 'R' was for 'Route 66'. I mentioned that I had driven it in 1975 from San Bernardino, CA to St. Louis, MO. Well, on my trip last week I drove it from Springfield, Illinois to Joliet. Over the next few Saturdays, I will post pictures from various cities on the Route, letting them tell their own story. First up is Atlanta, Illinois.
One of many murals on buildings along the Route. More about these next week.

Heading to Funk's Grove in Shirley to buy maple sirip. And no, I did not misspell it.
Next stop, Pontiac.
Have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend.
