Petrified From the Cockpit

Driving by the Petrified Forest in Arizona. Not sure what the giant dinosaur replica has to do with the forest. Perhaps it is just a marketing tool to catch the eye of the passerby? Seems a little Kitschy to me.

Abandoned along Route 66

More abandoned buildings along Route 66. Doesn’t take too long for the sagebrush and tumbleweed to claim the grounds.If we had had more time I would have docked the Mothership and walked around and, perhaps, explored inside some of these buildings; next time :-).

The Chase

These images were taken from the cockpit going 60+ mph, so not the best quality. What I saw was dinosaurs chasing a vehicle along Route 66. We were driving on I-40, which you can see runs really close to the old 66. I believe this was near the Petrified Forest Park, which is northern Arizona, Apache and Navajo land.

Abandoned Route 66 (Con’t.)

If you’re a Trainspotter,driving along I-40 and Route 66 is a great place to get your train ‘kicks’. It makes sense that train and vehicle routes would go hand in hand. Road trips are a great platform for discovery. I discovered that my wife was a closet ‘trainspotter’. She rarely failed to point out a train as we traveled and seemed to be truly excited with each sighting.
