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 here.

Our favorite camping place, Walmart. There were 18 wheelers in this one. We have never seen that before.

This is the original Route 66 road near Oklahoma City, OK. Note the concrete, narrow lanes and the upturned edges of the road to control water runoff.
