Route 66

Some photos from my recent trip to Amarillo.

I love nostalgia. I love classic cars and the open road (and photography).

Thought you might enjoy a few snapshots of the trip. Someday I want to drive all of Route 66, but…even driving just a small segment is fun.

Make you want to sing the song, doesn’t it?

So, for my little portion of the trip, we start at Clinton, OK at the Route 66 Museum.

Then you proceed west to the Texas state line: (where you should Boogie Back to Texas!)

For years, I’ve heard about the art deco gas station at Shamrock, TX. I made up my mind not to miss it this time. I exited the interstate at Shamrock, intent on finding it. Turns out, it’s right off the interstate. What architecture!

The U-Drop Inn.

Nostalgia….ah do you remember these? (wavery lines appear as we go into the dream sequence and a song starts playing…)

Our destination on this trip: The Big Texan!

In Amarillo…by Morning’…or maybe 3:00 which is when I got there.

Being a pi-an-ee player my-own-self…this kinda needs to be my mantra in life, doncha think?

Toodles!

    THOSE are a few of the parts of TX I would love to have experienced while I lived in TX — but, maybe someday, lol! Looks like you had a great trip!
