Historic Route 66 is a National Scenic Byway that passes through Santa Fe and Albuquerque.  The highway opened in 1926, and originally extended all the way from Chicago to Los Angeles.  It was later decommissioned and replaced by superhighways.  Nevertheless, this Mother Road continues to inspire travelers to “Get Your Kicks on Route 66”.  I particularly enjoyed seeing these vintage hotel signs (some of them are still in use!). 

About Pam
Richard and Pam lived in the San Francisco Bay Area 14 years (1987-1999 and 2008-2011). They lived in Florida 13 years previously, until returning in July 2011 to present. They hope their photography will encourage you to get out and discover nature's beauty in your own backyard, parks, and wild places.
