Vacation 2011: Route 66

083-2

abandoned gas station – route 66

Loads of cool photo opportunities along old Route 66, especially if you're into the rustic. Or rusty, maybe I should say.

Sad, though, seeing all these once thriving businesses gone to ruin. Once upon a time this was the most bustling road in America, the first trans-American highway. Generations of families knew this road, before President Eisenhower and the interstate system of highways. Just goes to show, for every feat of progress a little bit of culture dies.

This photo starts my series of old Route 66 pictures. Hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them.
