    Route 66 is a relic of the former U.S. Route 66 in Arizona and is the only part of old US 66 in Arizona to have state route markers.

    State Route 66 tends downward toward the west, with the vegetation becoming more desert-like toward Kingman. The terrain changes at a slower pace than the more direct Interstate 40, making it a scenic alternative at the cost of some time. It still serves communities that the freeway avoids, including Valentine and Peach Springs; it enters the Hualapai Indian Reservation.

    We took our 3 kids on a long road trip and went on the old 66. We then took them on the coast route from southern CA to Oregon. If you are on hwy 1, it is not for sissies and I think I was on the floor of the car more than not. I loved the route 66 trip. 122 in Bullhead city. Yikes.

    Have you been to Seligman? It's just west of Williams. I've been there several times, it's a blast from the past.
