Hackberry Arizona – Route 66

By the time I hit Crozier canyon/Hackberry I knew I had one more picture in me and I knew what I wanted.   Unfortunately, the winds were picking up, my shutters on my camera apparantly were hanging, and I just knew I needed to get home.   I could see heavy clouds forming in the direction of […]

Truxton Arizona – Route 66

I passed through Peach springs and Valentine to get to the cool neon warmth of The Frontier Cafe in Truxton Arizona.    Truxton is a pretty new route 66 town by most standards.     It came about as a hotel and cafe in 1951 when Donald Dilts built it to take advantage of the traffic that passed […]

Joseph City & Jack Rabbit Trading Post on Route 66

Most of Interstate 40 covers up old route 66 pavements, but when the frontage road doesn’t exactly parallel the freeway, much of the time you can bet it’s old 66.    Joseph city is one of those alignments, and I was looking foward to seeing  Joseph City before it ended in Gravel and disappeared under the […]
