Then when you leave Galena head south on BlackJack Road and pickup 84 south along the Mississippi to Savanna and then head east from there to home. It ends up being an all day adventure but you can do some people watching and Lunch in Galena in between driving (and more importantly, it make the wife happy!)

My wife and I did this last fall to enjoy the leaves. We caught the end of the season, but had a blast. There are some special moments on Stagecoach trail. Not a ton of great curves, but some nice rollercoaster hills and curves.

Enjoy!

Hmmmmm? Sounds alot like a stint of my route?
