Historic Route 66 - The Mother Road
A few years ago, I went on a photo workshops organized by Arizona Highways Magazine. For those who do not know, Arizona Highways is a great magazine featuring the best of Arizona as far as Landscape photography and local events.
The talented photographers who are regular contributors to the successful magazine took a small group to various spots on the Mother Road. Stops included Holbrook, Winslow, Flagstaff, Willams, Ash Fork, and Seligman.
Route 66 offers many opportunities for Old Time photos because of its history. You will step back in time when driving on the road, which passes through the beautiful Arizona mountains and deserts. The area between Williams and Seligman really made me feel like the 50's and 60's. The narrow road zips through the desert hills with Ash Fork in the middle. Old cars, gas stations, Coca-Cola machines, motels, drive-ins are part of the scenery. Restaurants play the 50's and 60's music, and Motels have signs to remind you which famous singer/artist slept there during the busy times.
I definitely recommend a trip along Route 66 if you like the history of the Mother Road, and if you want to see the American cars for which the World dreamed! "Get your Kicks on Route 66" and enjoy the ride.
