Found Mervyns

In the Arizona desert, near the Petrified Forest, sits this reminder of a store long defunct. I used to shop at Mervyn’s. I always wondered where Mervyns went.

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.
