When we left the Lake Mead Recreation Area we headed south towards Kingman, AZ. Kingman is said to be the “Heart of Route 66”. So what better place to make a stop over for the night.
On our way their Tory got real comfy on the dash.
Once she got to warm in the sun, Whisper was anxious to take her spot.
Too funny. They didn’t even notice the beautiful scenery passing them by.
Once we got into Kingman we went walking around town to explore. In town we found the famous Route 66 signs. They are not hard to miss. This town really goes all out in Route 66 memorabilia.
Kingman is home to the famed steam engine 3759 that rests in Locomotive Park. Click on the link to read more about that. To us was just a giant steam engine sitting in a park. Interesting, but not terribly so. Maybe we were just getting tired of history lessons.
Just next door to the park is Mr. D’s Route 66 Diner. Being lunchtime we went over and sat at the counter. In a place like this, we believe to get the full experience, you must sit at the counter. That’s where all the action is after all.
That was about all of Kingman, AZ. Other than Route 66 fame, not much else their that we saw. A couple museums that we didn’t go into, but that was it.
After this…onward to a giant Meteor Crater. That should be interesting.
Your babies are so cute and I don’t even consider myself a cat lover!
Enjoy safe travels!
Thanks Dasy. I’d have to agree, they are pretty darn cute. If I do say so myself. And I really am not biased at all.
Greetings from Minnesota, where it is 10 degrees outside.
It was fun to meet you and chat with both of you at the meteor crater.
I look forward to checking your blog regularly and wish your “family”
safe and interesting travels.
P.S. The photos you took of us with my camera turned out awesome.
As always stay outide the bubble, Gary Petersen
Hey Gary…Glad to read the photos turned out. Glad I could help with the photo for the family. Keep safe and it was nice meeting you.
