[On U.S. Hwy. 66 â€“ West of Kingman, Arizona]
West of Kingman, Arizona, Route 66 straightens out for a few miles. A driver can wind it out here, as he crosses the high-plains desert with rugged mountains dead ahead.
I blew past this dilapidated sign, slowing down just enough to take a picture through the car window. Although some of the words were missing, I knew the sign was a reference to Bobby Troupâ€™s American standard, â€œGet Your Kicks on Route 66.â€
If you remember the television show, â€œRoute 66â€ (1960-64), just about everything along this iconic highway reminds you of that song . . . and classic Corvettes. (The link, below, features Bobbyâ€™s tune and George Maharis, who co-starred in the television series.)
I was well past this sign when something told me I should pull over. Looking over my shoulder and using the telephoto lens on my little point-and-shoot camera, I saw that the sign had been â€œcontinuedâ€ on the reverse side!
Not only was this a JPG moment, it was, more importantly, another sign of the apocalypse!
Leaning out of the window, I took my shot.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
