My day began with quite a surprise when I opened the curtains to my hotel room:
Just 22 degrees and an inch of snow; very glad we weren’t in the tent last night! After a very good breakfast burrito at Grandpa’s Grill, we headed east out of Gallup in search of Route 66 memorabilia.
It wasn’t long before a sign directed us to exit I-40 and travel “Mother Road” for few miles. There are lots of sections of I-40 where the old two-lane runs nearly alongside the much newer interstate. More often than not, though, what’s left of a motel, filling station or restaurant could be found in the towns along the way.
Here’s what I mean: I’m traveling Route 66, shown here on the right, with I-40 right beside it on the left.
Due to technical “one finger frustrations”, we’ll continue with a new post of our continuing journey tomorrow. 🙄😬😃
