It is a year since my friends and I did our trip. Here are a few more Route 66 photos.

Texola OK, listed as a ghost town, but there are a few people still there. Just over the OK/TX border.

Frontier Motel, obviously not serving in the cafe.

Rainbow Bridge on Historic Route 66 in Southeast Kansas. The bridge is a single-span concrete Marsh arch bridge and is the sole surviving bridge of this type on the entire length of the former highway. Two other Marsh arch bridges were also located on US-66 in Kansas, both over the Spring River. It was built in 1923.

Stumbled across the former alignment of Route 66 where it went through what is now Petrified Forest National Park (external link) in Arizona. The traffic in the distance is I-40.

Wow! Time has really taken a toll, and nature sure wasted no time to take it all back. Was there any remnant of pavemrnt remaining?

No pavement remaining. I had to look around just to determine where the actual roadway used to be.

Behind these Teepees are regular rooms. About 50 feet behind the rooms are railroad tracks with many freight trains passing during the night to wake you up.
