Route 66 was a huge eye opener for me though, the abandoned buildings and even a zoo (the entry and animal exhibits still have fragments remaining, enough that you can recognize what it once was), it's crazy to see what has happened to these places as time and technology have progressed. This was really my first experience with seeing pretty much ghost towns, remnants of someplace that was once great, gone, just like dust in the wind. Huge eye opener and crazy cool with aspects of sadness; I am hoping throughout the journey we will be able to pick up more legs of this historic route.
And last but not least was Shiprock, which was incredible! I have to say seeing this giant rock jutting out of the earth, out in a vastness of flatness, is just majestic! There is just something powerful and eerie about it all at once; it seriously made me want to take up rock climbing just so I could see the world from on top of it! A goal for the next time we're that way!
Santa Fe, Roswell and our month long stay in San Antonio still to come, please stay tuned!
