How I met your Mother Road: Route 66 in Williams, Arizona

When we visited the Grand Canyon last May, we stayed in nearby Williams, Arizona on the road all other roads aspire to be, Route 66. You don't have to be an eccentric roadside attraction fan to appreciate how awesome Route 66 is, and Williams has some outstanding examples of Mother Road architecture. There was some glorious early evening sun when we were there, causing yesteryear's storefronts, motels and restaurants to look even more western and melancholy. I'd love to spend a year traveling up and down 66 (you listening, Powerball?). Won't you get hip to this timely tip: when you make that California trip, get your kicks on Route 66.

It has always been a dream of mine to leisurely travel the mother road. Oh how those pics make me wanna hit the pavement!

I agree, Amber. What a trip that would be!

Dear Powerball -
Please post the winning numbers so we can all travel at our leisure.

Nothing clever to add here... except... kudos on your great photos. Really well done. You caught some nice light and a great time of day. And, of course, everyone LOVES your legendary cow shots. You have a flair for this type of thing. Have you considered a career in photojournalism? Take it from me - it's certainly a growth industry!

Good job, kids!

Hey, thanks Bill. High praise, indeed, coming from you. Growth industry! HAHAHA! I figure if photojournalism doesn't work out, I can always get a job at the post office or installing landlines.
