Backroads America: The Best Laid Plans . . .

My goal to follow the Lincoln Highway to central Iowa hit a snag today. One of my own making. I underestimated how much extra time the long stretches of two-lane roads and going threw small towns would take. So, sorry Illinois but I took the interstate all the way across. I had places to be tonight.

Once I hit Iowa, I was back on track. Two pictures from Clarence, Iowa.

I stayed on US 30 across Iowa though much of the Lincoln Highway turned on and off parallel gravel roads. Maybe next time. Arrived in Dysart, Iowa, about 15 miles north of US 30.

Headed north to Minnesota tomorrow. So long, Lincoln. I hope to drive you again. Maybe next time I will actually have a chance to take more photos and explore more byways..
