As the Route 66 series continues (and we have 5 states to go!), I thought I’d share a few thematic galleries of photos which might go together well but be lost in a state-centric post.
Today’s theme is the abandoned road. I’ve mentioned that we sought out many alternate alignments or discarded sections of old Route 66. Here are a few of my favorite pictures from those less-traveled segments!
Remember, always respect private property! All old segments actually taken are still public roads or right-of-ways. Also note, we were experienced drivers in a high-clearance SUV with all-wheel drive. Don’t take your average rental onto what is now a BMX trail or a muddy track, and don’t take any car where it isn’t welcome!
