In case y’all didn’t notice that I have a Flickr Album, here’s a slideshow of most of the photos I took during my road trip last October. I’ve since bought a new camera and can’t wait to give this one a good workout for my next trip.

Finally got some free time to drop a few more pictures from my October road trip. That GPS photo BTW was a screenshot of my iPhone while I was traveling to Sedona in Arizona. Smooth sailing and then like a hundred switchbacks before I could finally get into town. LOL
Sedona is an amazing place though, plus I managed to get some decent time in at the Canyons before an unholy abomination of humanity descended like locusts onto the place. Right before the government shut it down, of course. Once I left the Canyons I traveled through the Navajo Nation and stopped by the famous Four Corners (also owned by the Navajos). I definitely recommend stopping by there, as the Navajos maintain a flea market of amazing arts and crafts that you can purchase as souvenirs.
Finally taking a little trip down memory lane from last road trip by sifting through my digital photo scrapbook. These are some of my favorites starting from Vegas and taking a dip down Route 66 to the ghost town of Oatman in Arizona. I capped off this part of the trip by visiting the Route 66 Museum in Kingsman before moving on to the Grand Canyons.
Once I left Vegas I had a chance to quickly tour Route 66 from Kingman to Oatman, where Route 66 enthusiasts can treat themselves to a quasi-ghost town of burros and staged gunfights. I wasn’t able to arrive in time for a gunfight, so I just followed the burros around trying to get an ideal shot. I was actually surprised by how active they were, clopping here and there and never able to stand still long enough for me to get a good frame.
But sometimes, you get lucky. I was about to leave when suddenly two burros snuck up behind me and then stood PERFECTLY in front of the sign for Oatman. I frantically pulled out my camera and snapped off one shot JUST in time before they moved off again.
It’s early days yet, but this may turn out to be my favorite picture and memory of Route 66.
