On the road again.....another trip down Route 66

Cadillac Ranch outside of Amarillo, Texas
It started as a simple college visit to Oklahoma University, that ended at the Pacific Ocean.  We used this blog to communicate in pictures, mostly, our trip out West in 2008.  Wow, has a lot happened since then!  Here are some posts from our Wild West vacation of 2016 which featured a sentimental journey down Route 66, recreating photos of our family from 13 years ago when we took the same trip and our kids were barely 3 and 1.  More posts to follow from this 11 day, 5500 mile trek.

The Dew Drop Inn, inspiration for one of the buildings in the movie Cars, now restored and serving as a visitors center in Shamrock, Texas
This is one of those recreated family photos at the Big Blue Whale of Catoosa, Oklahoma

Outside of the Teepee Curious shop in Tucumcari, New Mexico
Williams, Arizona

At the Snow Cap Drive In, another recreated photo, in Seligman, Arizona

Mr. Delgadillo's barbershop in Seligman, Arizona.   Delgadillo is credited with the rebirth of Route 66.

The Wigwam Motor Court in Holbrook, Arizona.  We stayed here 13 years ago-but not this trip.
