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.
