Photographing the past, saving it for the future ... on Historic U.S. Route 66

We have driven Route 66 in all eight states which the historic road traversed, and have accumulated a significant archive of photos and travel experiences.

We've been to Oatman, Glenrio, Needles, Springfield, Seligman, Santa Fe, Tucumcari, Amarillo and Tulsa. Then there were those trips through Galena, Cuba, Shamrock, Winslow, Joplin and Kingman, and so many more fun destinations and adventures!
