Doug Schneider will be leading a free Prime-Timers-only walking tour of the Chain of Rocks Bridge and Chouteau Island  on Friday morning, June 30.  We will start with a late breakfast at the Hen House in Granite City, Illinois, at 09:30 AM.  Then you will get a list of Route 66 landmarks you will pass as you drive to Chouteau Island.  We will walk the Chain of Rocks Bridge and admire the John Sweet/John Forti plaque in the middle of the bridge.  Optional: after the Bridge, walk a Chouteau Island trail to the banks of the Mississippi.

 

The Hen House has 4.5 stars out of 5 on Yelp.  (For those who want to skip breakfast, meet at Chouteau Island at 10:45 AM.)

 

This walking tour is free and is rain-or-shine.  Please RSVP to ParadiseDouglas@gmail.com.  Once you RSVP, you will get directions to the Hen House and to the parking lot on Chouteau Island.
