US Rt. 20 Southeast of Downtown Galena
One of the most picturesque drives in Illinois is US Rt. 20 just southeast of Galena. There are many scenic vantage points, and the one pictured above is about 12 miles southeast of Galena. There would be an even more scenic view provided by tower pictured below. However, after having been closed for the last few years as the bottom flight of stairs has been purposefully removed, it has now been completely removed. We haven't been able to find out for sure, but we think it has been removed for liability reasons.
