In keeping with my desire to travel the backroads rather than Interstate highways whenever possible, I decided to take the Lincoln Highway (US Route 30) most of the way back home to Chicago.
The Lincoln Highway through Pennsylvania is a wonderfully “authentic” road with many of the farms, forests, and small towns virtually unchanged since the road was new nearly 90 years ago. It was foggy in some of the higher elevations, and fall colors were beginning to show on the foliage.
As I got closer to Pittsburgh, the sun peeked out from the clouds briefly to create this pretty rainbow over a Lowe’s store.
I’d never been to Pittsburgh before but it looked like a really interesting town. I was losing daylight by the time I’d cleared the traffic jam into downtown so could only catch a few shots as I drove through.
But soon enough, I saw a few buggies on the road on with folks coming and going to the bustling town of Mount Vernon. There was a farmer’s market in the town square that I would have loved to go to… if only I could have found a parking space for my own little motorhome buggy!
