This is a portion of the National Old Trails Highway, also the original alignment of Route 66, west of Kingman, Arizona. This photo taken about one mile west of the one on page 82 in Karl Witzel’s new book, Legendary Route 66, reflects little change in ninety years. (Click on photo to enlarge)

This scene is about one mile west of Kingman on the National Old Trails Highway, the original alignment of Route 66.

This is from the post 1938 alignment looking across the canyon toward the scene above. The photo above shows the highway just a few hundred yards before it passes under the railroad bridge.

This photo is of entering Kingman from the west. This sign is about one mile east of where the photo above was taken.

Jim Hinckley's America is a grand adventure on the back roads and two lane highways. It is an odyssey seasoned with fascinating people, and memory making discoveries. As made evident by the publication of fourteen books on subjects as diverse as diverse as Ghost Towns of the Southwest, The Illustrated History of the Checker Cab Manufacturing Company, Travel Route 66, Backroads of Arizona, and The Route 66 Encyclopedia, I enjoy sharing adventures and helping people plan for their own memory making journeys.
