The road signs along Route 66 are wonderfully retro, aesthetically beautiful and, at times, profoundly sad. So much of the highway has fallen into complete disrepair; what's been replaced is now cracked pavement (when it exists at all) sprouting grass.
The signs that haven't been restored are the ones I love best, but if no one ever restores them one day they'll be gone. Catch-22.
One thought on “Vacation 2011: Route 66 – Seeing the Signs (Pt. 1)”
Love your pictures! We drove Rt 66 in 2007 and it was one of my favorite vacations. Met some great people along the way.
