During our road trip through Northern Arizona our path crossed the famous ‘Mother Road’, Route 66, several times. On our last day we decided to drive the section of Route 66 from Seligman to Kingman, one of the few in-tact segments of the highway which originally stretched from Chicago to Los Angeles. On the way we found numerous original gas stations, motels, road side shops with classic 50s & 60s cars out front and other Route 66 memorabilia which awakens the nostalgia of the Great American Road Trip from the Midwest to the Pacific Coast.
Cruising down Route 66 is one of America’s classics. We were lucky to experience some Route 66 nostalgia on our Northern Arizona road trip. Besides parts of the famous road, we visited Monument Valley, Canyon de Chelly, the Petrified Forest, Sedona, Navajo Country, Antelope Canyon, the Horseshoe Bend and the Grand Canyon.
