FIELDS TRIP
Interstate 70 Illinois

Interstate 70 runs 2,175 miles across the midsection of the United States. It begins at Interstate 15 near Cove Fort, Utah, and travels through Utah, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Maryland en route to its end in Baltimore, Maryland. On Day Five of the Fields Trip, I drove Interstate 70 from the western Interstate 465 junction in Indianapolis, Indiana, to Interstate 270 near Edwardsville, Illinois.
