Route 66 marked the beginning of the end of the trip for us. It was the home stretch back to California, wth a couple of stops on the way.
We had given ourselves 10 days to get from Joliet, IL to the Grand Canyon. We had a lot of driving to do!
Day one was spent driving from Joliet, IL to Springfield, IL.
