Route 66, other wise know as The Mother Road, is likely the most famous highway in the US that is no longer a highway, being decommissioned in 1985. At one time it played a significant role in the migration of people to the west coast.
Since being decommissioned, large sections of the route have either disappeared or have been integrated into local communities. Other sections have been “assimilated” into state roads or routes.
One of the best and longest uninterrupted sections of Route 66 runs through the state of Arizona and the section I road in October of 2013 went from Kingman to Flagstaff. I chose this section as it was part of an adventure my wife and I took from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon and I’d always wanted to travel part of Route 66.
There are a few photos of that trip.
