More Route 66
We left the Canyon today. We chose to take the quick route to Flagstaff instead of the scenic route. The elk would have been cool to see but really didn't want to risk hitting one!
More desert and mountain landscape today. We did see some of the Petrified Forest and the Painted Desert. We managed to get that shot of the Continental Divide sign.(Do you remember your geography?) Also great mountains in New Mexico.
Most fun stop was "Standing on a corner in Winslow,Arizona." Does everyone know where they've heard that before? You can also"get you kicks on Route 66" in Winslow. All of the towns on remaining portions of Route 66 play it up for tourism dollars. It is fun for us baby-boomers.
We're staying in Santa Rosa instead of Albuquerque or Tucumcari. On the recommendation of our hotel desk clerk,we ate at a cute place called the Lake City Diner. Good, fresh, New Mexican food.
HOME TOMORROW (but we have to stop at The Big Texan first) Hook 'Em Horns!
