[One block off of the main drag in Oatman, Arizona, August, 2010]
Last August, I drove a long length of U.S. Route 66 (the “Mother Road”) from Ash Fork, Arizona to Needles, California. (Please see previous posts.)
The rich ranchland to the east gives way to the rugged terrain in the west . . . and grinding poverty.
Oatman, Arizona is a lot like hundreds of other towns in the Old West. Once a mining camp, today it caters exclusively to tourists. Main Street is lined with shops and diners. Burros are wandering about, even on the boardwalk, a nice feature.
As I was leaving Oatman, I turned from Main Street to have a look at the “residential” area. (Please see previous collages.)
From here, it was just another 25 miles to the Colorado River and California.
As always, thanks for stopping by.
