Day 4 0n Route 66

Santa Rosa, NM to Williams, AZ - 519 miles.
Weather has cooled to the low 90s, traffic is light & gas is $2.15/gallon.
We missed the severe storm/tornado that hit Cuba, MO by about 48 hours.
Tomorrow (Monday) we visit the Grand Canyon.

The Unser Museum in Albuquerque is very well done and well worth the visit for all race fans.

Dan Coughnour (pictured) & Ildiko Marcus joined us at the Continental Divide
One of many dramatic scenes in the Arizona Painted Desert

Petrified wood in the Petrified Forest.....Don't know why they call it a forest.

Wigwam Motel in Hollbrook, AZ....a real motel with 50s model cars parked at every "room."

"Standin' On The Corner In Winslow Arizona"
The lyrics from the song "Take It Easy", written by Jackson Browne and Glenn Frey, were made famous by "The Eagles".  It has put Winslow on the map - barely.....nothing else of interest here.
