The Lincoln Highway is a historic, Coast-to-Coast route spanning the United States from East to West, beginning in New York City' Times Square and ending in Lincoln Park, San Francisco.

Because the originators were unwilling to deviate from the original vision; to establish as straight a path across the country as possible at the time (c.1913), the Lincoln Highway bypasses primarily scenic attractions such as National Parks and Landmarks, and passes through New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, ultimately ending California.

I learned about the Lincoln Highway initially traveling through Nebraska's panhandle during my ongoing 4042n Project, and became more interested this past summer during a visit to Illinois, when I learned that same stretch of road in western Nebraska also connected Iowa, Illinois and other states before and after.

Having driven from Illinois to Colorado for more than 35years, I finally decided to take the time to travel the Lincoln Highway home to Colorado and see what I could see. What followed is a collection of images that will (no surprise) expand over time as more of this famous road is traveled.
