years after the end of World War II. Route 30 connects Omaha, Nebraska, to
Salt Lake City, Utah. Grant traveled west through Nebraska and Wyoming which
is now known as the Lincoln Highway.

series of Grant’s pictures from Nebraska and Wyoming made seven long decades
ago, in tribute to the innate human desire to get up and go.
