ROUTE 66 was once a bustling highway, the bloodline for any American looking to travel West. But is now a decaying remnant of a forgotten time. Built in 1926, Route 66 started in Chicago and traveled 2,448 miles to its destination point in Santa Monica, California, on the Pacific Ocean.
Made famous by the song “(Get Your Kicks On) Route 66” and also a TV show, Route 66 is a piece of American history that, although may not be in as much demand today, can still offer anyone a uniquely scenic drive.
The following images are from the Southwestern leg of Route 66 in Arizona. Exiting off of the I-40 through Seligman, Peach Springs, Truxton, Hackberry, and finally the mule town of Oatman.
