US 51 begins in Hurley, Wisconsin, right on the Michigan border just south of the shores of Lake Superior. The route heads south through the center of Wisconsin and Illinois before arriving at the tip of Illinois and crossing the Ohio River where it meets the Mississippi. After a short ride through Kentucky, US 51 enters Tennessee, passing through Memphis before crossing the border into Mississippi. US 51 heads south through central Mississippi and then crosses into Louisiana, riding above the western shore of Lake Pontchartrain before ending just west of New Orleans.

We traveled US 51 from end to end in August 2015, taking these photographs along the way.
