Route 66 has beauty, history and fun

IMG_1102As we journeyed Route 66 from Oklahoma into Texas and New Mexico, we didn’t get a chance to stop at many of the historic and picturesque locations.  Actually, for me, it was sometimes difficult to determine when Route 66 diverted from Interstate 40.  It seems in Texas there were only a couple of places.

IMG_1085I would have enjoyed easing through the less-beaten paths in some of the towns but time didn’t permit these extra travels.  However, after thinking back, I wonder how Route 66 was created.

IMG_1086I began researching how Route 66 began but due to time constraints I decided to hold off for another post. So I just posted some of the sights along the way.

    1. Thanks. There is so much to discover everywhere we travel. I look forward to reading your posts about Pearl Harbor too. You do great in showcasing history.

      1. Thank you! So glad you enjoy my work, I sure like yours too. Very soon (later this month) my husband and I are taking off for a big trip to tour the battlefields of Western Europe. I’m betting my blog will be busy after that trip 🙂

      2. Thank you too! I trust you will have a great trip. No doubt you’ll be busy writing. I still haven’t written much about my travel to Germany a couple of years ago. I still plan to highlight some castles and the area though, eventually.

Hello there. I appreciate your thoughts - let's talk.
