One Way: US 40 West

Historical Route 66, Next Right

U.S. Highway 66 should be recommissioned. It's not a particularly important part transportation route these days due to the construction of the interstate highway system, but it is an important cultural (and economic) route for the towns it passes through. Maybe it gets more attention as a signed historic route everywhere, but there would no doubt be travellers who go out of their way to follow the so-called mother road if a continuous route were created again.

In search of services, we found ourselves along this one-time highway in Winslow, Arizona. It is the site of this picture of the day.

kamoranakrre takes pictures of post offices when he runs across them. He's far from obsessive about it, but maybe one day he'll get them all...
