Photo-Traveloging Route 66

We’re taking on Route 66! How far will we get and how long will it take us?

We started with an interview with Route 66 expert Jim Conkle, who has traveled the iconic highway from one end to the other over 200 times.
Jim shared his knowledge and experience as a tour guide for Route 66.

And we will be sharing our exploration of Route 66 in our photo travelogues.

We started this week, taking a day to travel from Victorville to Needles. We decided we’d make stops at the Bagdad Café in Newberry Springs, and visit the GHOST TOWN OF Bagdad, searching for a tree and a sign that I read was there to mark the former location of the town (there was no sign to be found)

We’d always wanted to visit the Mojave Preserve, so we decided we would visit there since we’d be out that way.

This did turn out to be an interesting trip, and it was rather ambitious of us to try to do it in one day, because there’s just too much to take in. We’re doing this stretch again– in smaller chunks. And then we’ll move on to the next..and then the next. We expect to have a lot to share in upcoming episodes.

So… come along for the ride!
