For most folks Route 66 and Arizona are equated with top down fun (convertibles) and Harley Davidson built motorcycles. Well, here is a Route 66 surprise from Kingman, Arizona.
I took these quick photos, one of the Dambar on the corner of Andy Devine Ave. (Route 66) and the other of the now closed Hot Rod Cafe, formerly the iconic City Cafe also on Route 66, yesterday on the way home. It snowed off and on throughout the evening and last night went I hit the sack it was snowing rather hard.
This morning it looks as though we have about six inches on the ground and temperatures are hovering around 25 degrees. So, I have to decide between the fun of a bicycle ride in the crisp morning air or spending time digging out old Barney for a drive down a snow covered Route 66.

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.
