A quick note about the right photo . I saw a road sign advertising a meteor impact site and thought it
would be a cool thing to see. After I drove several miles off the highway to get to the place I encountered all this fencing and a bunch of rigamarole AND there was a fee to see a hole in the
ground. Being the prudent person that I am I said no thanks and took this photo. I leave the experience of the impact to your imaginations.
Well I was standin' on the road in Winslow, AZ and I saw they were getting ready for revival. Okay so that's not the Eagles lyric. Anyway this particular lamp post grabbed my attention because there are so many of these same lamp posts in so many of these small towns I travel through. I ask myself is there only one lamp post manufacturer in the U.S. now? Hmm!
Dear readers I do want you to know that as of this installment I have left Albuquerque and am en route to Flagstaff and Kingman, AZ via a stretch of old Route 66. I think you'll enjoy this journey in spite of the inclement weather I encountered. Truly storms in these wide open spaces are magnificent.
I left Flagstaff in anticipation of my drive on the old section of Route 66 which has been featured on several TV shows whose names I can't remember now. Nostalgia is the name of the game here. My favorites were the Stagecoach 66 run by Norwegians and the Roadkill Café. I did not eat there but I was not hungry at the time. Go figure.
If you have never been out west it is my desire that this missive will encourage you to make the trip.
Adios, till next time.
