U.S. Route 66, in eight states

We visited the US Botanic Garden’s annual “Season’s Greenings” display titled “Roadside Attractions” featuring plant-based recreations of iconic sights from across the United States, with G gauge model trains chugging around, below, through and above the displays.

A sign for the famous Route 66, one of the first highways within the US Highway System. It was established in 1926 and ran from Chicago to Santa Monica, California, covering a total of 2.448 miles (3,940 kilometers), and was retired from the highway system in 1985.

an historic route to be admired for sheer still lives too, at least as nostalgia..
