Route 66

Pictures: On my bike ride this morning.

This old road is part of what use to be Route 66, it runs for about 4 miles and I am camped near the center of it. Last year I walked to the east end and this year I rode my bike to west end. Both ends of the road come to meet I-40. I don’t know if they take back up on the other side of the interstate or maybe it run with it, not sure. It is on it’s last leg and I doubt that it will ever be restored. I love finding little pieces of Route 66, I always imagine old Model T s and Model A s running back and forth on them πŸ™‚ And I always think of the all the people I knew as a kid and wonder how many of them may have rode across this very part of the road at one time in their life. Maybe even my father when he came west to work in the CC Camps as a young man. I am sure if this old road could talk it would have tells of fascination beyond belief πŸ™‚

    1. I see many places where they like to show off their stores and such as being on Route 66 and in lots of city where it is part of their streets. I still love finding the parts that are not in use no more the best πŸ™‚
