Well, we failed! Our goal was to make it to The Grand Canyon and we only made it as far as Santa Fe, NM. We were just having too much fun and spending too much time at the fun stops along the way. Plus, our journey started in Central Florida so, we had to drive quite a distance just to reach Route 66 in Oklahoma City.
We didn’t have a travel schedule for a reason. I sure didn’t want to be gone for 15 days and return absolutely exhausted and feeling like we all we did was drive.
Mission accomplished! We meandered off and on Route 66, saw some fun sites, ate amazing food, and had an overall fun and relaxing trip. We will cover Arizona and Colorado on the next trip.
We are currently making our way back east to Alabama. Since I don’t have fun vacation pics to show on our trip back, I figured I would share the goofy Daisy Mae. She sure is a good traveler and she absolutely loves the Motorhome.
Oh, and we are headed to our next “first” adventure in Alabama. More on that next week…
Next stop: Santa Fe, NMThe last two days have been filled with all of the strange and entertaining roadside “must sees” of Route 66.
It seems that the goal was to display “the biggest” or “the tallest” or… There was clearly no concern as to what the biggest or tallest novelty was. Cowboy, Ox, Shoe, Tower…
Speaking of towers, check out this gem. All 4 legs are the same length but the center water pipe it too tall. It was too costly to fix so they just left it that way.
This cross stands 190 ft tall and is believed to be the largest in the Western Hemisphere. It includes beautiful night time lighting and all of the stations of the cross below.
The closer we get to New Mexico, the more creative the “art”.
