Route 66 in Arizona
We saw signs all along interstate 40 for Route 66. But we didn't actually get on it until we reached Arizona at Kingman. It was well off the beaten path. Instructed to put on day headlights while driving on this two lane highway, we stayed on it for this entire desolate portion. There were plenty of mesas and trains, and eventual cattle land and an Indian reservation. All along the way were run down old motels and such that once stood in full glory. Then we reached Williams where there was more sign of life featuring days gone by. After staying over in Flagstaff, we reached Winslow this morning famous for the Eagles/Jackson Brown song "standing on the corner in Winslow Arizona." All I know is independence Avenue in Washington DC is a corner I would rather be on.
