We took this ride a couple weeks ago. Left alton and went to the ABATE rally in Altamont (it was dissapointing) Left there the next day and went to Marion and spent the night. Woke up next day and started the route. It really was amazing. One thing that was left out was, about 9 miles up the road from Garden of the Gods (which is beautiful. Didnt realize Illinois had counrty like that) is a place calle Pounds Hollow, which is a small lake in the middle of no where. They turned it into a state park and it is beautiful. Take your swim suits because it has nice sandy beaches and a really nice swimming area. This whole trip is a must do. we spent 4 days on this trip and never touched a highway.
