American Locations 47

The trip is from Lewis & Clark Monument, Illinois, to Kickapoo State Park, Illinois, by way of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Arizona

Carlock, Iowa, & Kickapoo State Park, Illinois

We continued east on I-80. The Interstate followed the Platte River until Grand Isle, where the river turned north. Soon after we crossed out of Nebraska into Iowa, a severe storm hit. We got off the Interstate at Avoca and found a small camp ground at a county fairgrounds. The next morning we continued east on I-80. At Davenport we crossed the Mississippi River into Illinois, and turned onto I-74. We continued southeast to Carlock, where we found another small private campground.

There were a lot of wind turbines around.

The next morning we drove a short distance to Kickapoo State Park. This was to be our last stop on the trip, and we wanted it to be in a park and not a private campground.

The next morning we drove home, east on I-74 out of Illinois into Indiana to Indianapolis, then southeast on I-74 on out of Indiana into Ohio to Cincinnati. The trip was over and we were back home.
