Motorcycle trip along Lincoln Highway on Flickr

October 1, 2009

A Flickr user named Bill posts photos of road trips taken on his the Honda ST1100 named “SilverSTreak.” He recently documented his wonderful cross-country journey along much of the 1913 alignment of the Lincoln Highway at www.flickr.com/photos/silverstreakst/3915870529/.

Immerse yourself in Denny's Lincoln Highway trip

August 24, 2009

A week ago I reported on Denny’s Gibson’s blog but if you didn’t bother visiting it, go to dennygibson.com/lhwest09/ now and spend a half hour seeing, feeling, and tasting a trip along the Lincoln Highway westward from Illinois. Make sure you click his photos to see them bigger; here are a few.

Denny_NE_CvrdWagonA real heartbreaker, the Covered Wagon attraction near Kearney, Nebraska. Someone was working on the building last year, with plans to restore the wagon and oxen, but now they look worse than ever.

Denny_WY_MedBowW Here’s a great old road segment west of Medicine Bow, Wyoming. A truck used the road while Denny was there.
