I was running along old US 66 and one thing that struck me between Valentine and Seligman were three sets of Burma Shave signs still in place. I'm not sure if they were original are not because the last original sign was placed in 1963, but it was a trip back in time. Next on our way back in time was a stop at Seligman Arizona. Seligman has not left the 60's and has all the ambiance of a carnival midway. I guess it works for them, but I can't imagine anyone less than an old hippie living there. Here take a look.
And then it was onto Williams for a stop Monday night. Not much activity here because I will be back in August for a trip to the Grand Canyon with my sisters and their husbands.
Leaving Tuesday morning the first stop was in Winslow Arizona where I was again seen 'standing on the corner'.
I also wanted to catch the La Posada Hotel which is the last hotel built by the Santa Fe Railroad for Fred Harvey. It has been restored and is still in use.
The front of the hotel.
The old railroad depot.
A fountain between the courtyard and the depot.
The trainside of the hotel.
The rear gate and train viewing area.
A really big yard ornament.
And just across the street an old diner.
Today we are in Gallup New Mexico at the USA RV Park where we will spend some time plotting our next move. I have also run Mel through the Blue Beacon Truck Wash to remove some of the Arizona topsoil. Now to sit back and enjoy the good life,
