This new road has been the worse we have been on so far on this whole trip. It was very lightly traveled which was good, but the road was narrow, and simply not maintained – rough and with potholes! But we did not really have any other choices. We felt like we were on back, back road America!!
Along the way we saw farmers cutting hay and harvesting wheat and almost every farm homestead had grain elevators.

I did find an antique shop open when I had time to browse. Too often I go pass an antique shop before they are open at 10:00. The town of McLeansboro also had two lovely old buildings (see photos).
We made it to Mt Vernon, IL. Actually we stopped about 10 miles north of town and drove south to find a hotel.
