The beginning and the end of Route 66
I have been meaning to post these two pictures for several months, but it took me awhile to go back through my archives and find the older one. I took the first photo back on December 15, 2011 while I was in Chicago, Illinois. It is the sign that marks the beginning of Route 66 in Illinois. The Willis Tower is partially visible in the background. I took the second picture this past summer on the Santa Monica Pier in California. This sign marks the end of the Route 66, which originally covered 2,451 miles and was one of the most famous roads in America. You can read more about Route 66 here.
