After a restful and enjoyable night at the Big Texan, we left this morning for the final leg of our Route 66 journey. First stop Route 66 Amarillo.
Next stop was Vega, TX.
Next stop was the halfway point between Chicago and Los Angeles in Adrian, TX. As we were pulling off of Route 40 to get back onto Route 66, Elvis saw goats and started barking and the goats started running. He is a herding dog afterall.
This is my first time in New Mexico. I have always wanted to visti, but after seeing ‘Crazy Heart’ I really wanted to visit Albuquerque and Santa Fe. First stop in New Mexico, after an almost another scary dirt road adventure, was Motel Row in Tucumari.
After stopping at Route 66 Gas Station so Elvis and Cilla could stretch their legs and use the facilities, we stopped in Santa Rosa, NM.
Our next and final stop on Route 66 was Albuquerque. The scenery is beautiful and Old Town is a cute little town.
So I did it. I drove Route 66 from Tulsa, OK to Albuquerque, NM. It was very cool, and I’m glad I did it and saw some cool stuff. But I am glad I’ll be at the same hotel in Old Town the next few night while visiting Albuquerque and Santa Fe.
