Old Route 66
corey says…Today proved to provide the most variety when it came to scenery. We decided to head north from the desert and Saguaro cacti of Phoenix to the high desert of Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon. There the red rocks and the stone formations stopped us in our tracks.
Then it was up the mountain to Flagstaff, where there was snow and pine trees. What a world of difference in just a few miles.
We then hopped on Old Route 66 to Kingman. It’s an amazing piece of road and on that stretch, it’s easy to imagine what a drive from Chicago to LA would have been like back in the day…long, desolate and beautiful.
I have to say…it was one of the most pleasing drives I’ve ever been on…and I’ve got the photos to show for it. http://flickr.com/photos/irishfireside/sets/72157612951653101/
That reminds me, I rearranged the photo albums so they now grouped by state. I hope that makes it easier to find things…It’s hard to figure out the best way to organize them.
