A North-South Route

I just got Highway 61 Revisited: 1,699 Miles from New Orleans to Pigeon River from the library yesterday. The author says that U.S. Highway 61 has as much (if not more of) a claim to being the mother road as the decommissioned U.S. Highway 66 does. Route 61 is a far better cross section of our country (and the St Louis area, for that matter).

Today I drove for a bit along U.S. 61. and bring to you a set of shields for the picture of the day.
