Rolling Down Route 66

I thought it would be fun to do a collection of Route 66 photographs.  I loved driving on Route 66.  It was full of history and fortitude.  As I stated in an earlier post, I felt bad, at first, that there were so many deserted buildings and businesses around Route 66.  Then I realized that there were still quite a few open businesses and that there seems to be restored interest in the historic route.  I hope that the route can recover and that businesses can once again thrive.  It is a piece of history that America cannot afford to lose.

"Well, I'm a standin' on a corner in Winslow, Arizona Such a fine sight to see It's a girl, my Lord, in a flat-bed Ford Slowin' down to take a look at me"  by Jackson Browne and Glenn Frey

“Well, I’m a standin’ on a corner in Winslow, Arizona
Such a fine sight to see
It’s a girl, my Lord, in a flat-bed Ford
Slowin’ down to take a look at me” by Jackson Browne and Glenn Frey

Unfortunately, I drove right by the Cadillac Ranch without stopping.  I came up on my so fast, I drove right by it.  There were a few other sights I wanted to see but I drove right by.  Sorry about that.  Hope you do like the few photographs I actually did get.  I hope to be taking the rest of Route 66 on another trip.
