40 to Phoenix Day 6, Route 66 And Bobby Kemp

First I will admit I wimped out on going to Palo Duro Canyon tonight for dinner. I got to the motel late and just did not have enough time to go. But I have had a blast today on Route 66. The overcast skies added a nice mood to my photos.

40 to Phoenix Day 7, More Route 66 Photos

Today wraps up my Route 66 tour. I plan to go south in the morning and take US 60 into Phoenix. There are some sights I want to see including the VLA (Very Large Array), Pie Town and Salt River Canyon. If I ever do this ride again I will take Route 66 on to Flagstaff, AZ and beyond to get more photos.

40 to Phoenix Day 8, Final Dash to Phoenix

This was a crazy day. I have never ridden in such strong crosswinds. Several gusts tried to take off my helmet. Then there was the snow, the snow plow and the mud. Then the temperature dropped below 30° and the wind chill got brutal. But my heated jacket and using my rain gear as a wind breaker kept me toasty.

Day 2, Little Rock to Amarillo and Route 66

Today we visited some Route 66 sites I photographed earlier this year during my “40 to Phoenix” motorcycle ride. You can read more details about some of these places in that blog

Day 5, VLA, Pie Town and Seligman, AZ

We were on the road before sunrise again heading toward Pie Town. I took this route on my 40 to Phoenix motorcycle ride back in the spring and wanted to share it with Laurie. The first stop was the Very Large Array (VLA). The radio antennas are cool and the views are very nice. The air was clear and crisp unlike what we would run into the next day.

Day 6, Peach Springs, AZ to Stovepipe Wells, Death Valley

A continental breakfast was included in the campground fee so we had coffee, juice and bagels before we left. Old Route 66 leaves I-40 near Seligman and loops north of I-40 through here to Peach Springs then back down to reconnect with I-40 at Kingman. I’ve read that Peach Springs was the inspiration for Radiator Springs in the movie Cars. We stopped to photograph a couple of abandoned motels on old Route 66 west of Peach Springs.

We Just Wanted a Pecan Log Roll From Stuckeys

When we travelled as a kid we often stopped at Stuckeys to get fuel and their peanut brittle. I think they may have given something free on a fill up but I really don
