The Prairie State and Land of Lincoln are just two of the state’s nicknames. Illinois is both of these and much, much more. And way more than just the city of Chicago, dazzling though that great city most certainly is. On this trip I set out to discover what makes Illinois’ miles so magnificent.

  We started the trip in Denver and drove south to Colorado Springs. Then via the Old West mining towns of Gunnison and Crested Butte we carried on to Great Sand Dune National Park and the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park.

  Come with me on a lightening tour of one of the most scenic parts of one of the most scenic states in the U.S.: Northwestern Colorado.  The Green City. Denver truly is green. Not only in the literal sense, with great open-space parks and gardens, but also in the save-the-planet sense of environmentally friendly.

   My trip to Missouri was a travel through both time and space: from the time of the founding of the First State Capitol and of the explorers Lewis and Clark who opened up Westward expansion, to the of-the-moment glitz of Branson’s bright lights. And from the Eastern boundary with the Mississippi River to the Western boundary with Kansas and Oklahoma.
