So as We cruise east on I-40, a sign says “Historic Rte 66, exit here”. Well, since that was my reason for taking this route, I exit. About 10 miles in I find our roadbed changes to heavy reddish clay mixed with gravel; I’ve driven on much worse on some back roads in Allegan County Michigan.
Thankfully jumping off the Interstate took us by a couple old motels, barely standing…
Here are a few other shots taken after we got back on pavement and closer to the eastern border of Texas:
Finally, I was amazed at the number of power-generating windmills I saw in the Texas panhandle and in northwest Oklahoma. They’re making the most of those wide open spaces!
