Snapshots Along the Road

Route 66 Road Trip Website

On this website our staff shares highlights of recent travels and popular road trips along Historic U.S. Route 66, featuring original photographs, personal commentary, travel reviews, travel guides, trip planning tips and recommendations.

We love America, and travel to the many exciting places and destinations that the country offers. We also enjoy being out on the open roads of America, like cross-country trips on Route 66, The Mother Road.

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 visited Oatman, Glenrio, Needles, and Seligman. Then there were those trips through Galena, Cuba, Shamrock, Winslow, and Joplin, and so many more fun destinations and adventures!

We've enjoyed overnight lodging in cities like Kingman, Santa Fe, Tucumcari, Flagstaff, Springfield, Amarillo, Rolla, Tulsa and Oklahoma City.
