We get our Kicks on Route 66!

 Day Two was more relaxing as we ventured into wide open spaces. Had to pull out the Owners Manual for my Honda CRV and re-learn how to use the cruise control. Traffic was light and we were able to enjoy the California spendor as we headed east.
Entering Arizona!
By late morning we crossed into Arizona near Lake Havasu.

And enjoyed the many colorful and spectucular mesas that populate the scenery in that state!

Historic Route 66 in Williams, Arizona!
 The famous US Route 66 has long been a part of our history as well, and beginning at Barstow, most of the next 2,200 miles of our trip will be along historical Route 66, and places Beth and I have lived when young with our families, or later during our married lives. Such places include Amarillo, TX, where I lived when in junior high; Weatherford, OK; Tulsa, OK; Fort Leonard Wood, MO; Chanute AFB, IL; and the Chicago area.

Even Route 66 gas!
We made a deliberate side trip into the town of Williams, Arizona, where the town has taken special effort to define their Route 66 heritage!
