This is the 2nd page of a 2-page “Gas Stop” layout about our stop at Atlanta, Illinois on our first day of vacation. Of course, I’ve always heard of Route 66 and we’ve driven on parts of Route 66 before, but actually standing on this little stretch of road – this piece of American history – was pretty cool. The murals in the town were amazing. The Palm Grills Cafe mural was one of my favorites. Oh – and see the smiley face on the sign above? Watch for a post about it and a picture of it in an upcoming post!
We stopped for gas in Atlanta, Illinois, and stumbled upon a Route 66 gold mine! What a picturesque little town! Loved the Route 66 park with all the beautiful painted highway signs. My favorite, though, was the bullet-riddled sign. Of course, everything on this stretch of road is “Route 66” – including a local mechanic!
