Get Your Greyhound Fix on Route 66!
Neal & I spent the last 10 days wandering around Arizona and Nevada. Normally, while we are away, we find some connection to our dogs. On this trip, it was our cruise of historic Route 66. The largest remaining portion of this road, that once connected Los Angeles to Chicago, runs through Arizona. The above picture was taken at a general store (& I should mention, the ONLY store) in Hackberry. At one time, this route was used extensively by motorists, whether private vehicles or Greyhound buses. Now days, it is a secondary highway & very desolate. Many of the communities along the road are now ghost towns.
