Plans underway to preserve historic High Desert stretch of Route 66

I’ve spent quite a bit of time driving old Route 66, photographing the remaining iconic places from Winslow Arizona to Santa Monica California.

There are still some of the original locations still in existence, but many have been razed. What I find sad is that some of the locations have been bulldozed to build new “modern” buildings that they attempt to brand with the “Mother Road,” but the designs fall way short.

 I hope that the plan to preserve Route 66 preserves as many of the historic locations as possible. 

Congress should immediately declare the road as a historic site.
