We picked up the Route 66 trail in Oklahoma and followed along the southwest through Arizona before heading up to Utah.
Our first stop was in Clinton, Oklahoma where we stopped at the Route 66 Museum. We stopped at another Museum along Route 66 but this was our favorite.
We watched for signs and noticed that the highway follows along I-40 which makes it easy to follow along. Zip off, follow along, back on to the interstate...We make our way along the highway at a snails pace.
One stop that we were sure that we would see was Cadillac Ranch.... , Most people have heard of it. We were determined to see it, fortunately it is right off of the highway so if you miss the exit just get off at the next one and circle back.
We took a couple of grocery bags with us as we walked among the Cadillac tombstones and gathered some of the discarded cans. It is so nice to have everything you need in your little home as you go down the road.
We were here on Sunday morning so we did not go into San Felipe de Neri Church as we did not want to disturb the worshipers. (We did peek in and it is beautiful)
We wondered through the streets and shops and I particularly enjoyed the architecture and the hidden courtyards. In the New Mexico heat, they are a cool respite.
