3) Every Christmas the city of Kingman decorates its historic locomotive for the holidays –
4) Daggett, California is one of those dusty, forgotten places where even the resurgent interest in U.S. 66 has been unable to shake the dust from a town with a very long, rich, and colorful history –
5) McLean, Texas is a bit big to be considered a ghost town but street scenes such as this seem to make that term an apt descriptor –

11) 4 Women on the Route in Galena, Kansas is the modern face of legendary Route 66 –
12) This is the famous “Sidewalk Highway” segment of old 66 between Narcissa and Afton in Oklahoma –
13) Jericho in Texas, at the east end of the infamous Jericho Gap, is a true ghost town where only the wind whistling through the broken windows carries the laughter and sounds of better times –
14) Kumar Patel and his family are the stewards of the time capsule that is the Wigwam Motel in Rialto, California – 
15) Daggett in California has a wide array of fascinating little treasures that cast shadows over the dusty streets – 
16) The Mojave River bridge east of Victorville, California is a very rare gem – 
17) Even though Santa Monica Pier and Palisades Park in Santa Monica, California are not officially a part of Route 66 their association with that highway has made them inseparable –
18) The empty shell of the Avon, Motel in Afton, Oklahoma has a forlorn feel to it even under sunny skies –
19) This is another vestige of better times in Santa Rosa, New Mexico –
20) Spencer, Missouri is the kind of place I think most every fan of Route 66 dreams of owning some day –
