|On the 6th day of being on the road we had reached Texas|
|Our Lunchtime stop was directly opposite|
the Jail / Prison pictured below
|This inmate was watering the grass|
|Our very first bit of Route 66 and still in Texas.|
We'd not long passed Amarillo and had also gone passed
the famous 'Cadillac Ranch'
|Still on Route 66 and we're heading that a way !|
|Our nights stop in New Mexico -'Blue Swallow' Motel|
Each double room with it's own garage and a free 1st beer from the outside fridge.
|Oh what a beautiful sign !|
The owner is restoring the car too.
All this for $80 a night which at the time was £40
|The next morning at approximately 8 am the skies were clearing after a night of torrential|
rain,thunder and lightening .
It was our third and last experience (luckily all 3 happened at night) of bad weather
|It must have already been 70 degrees plus|
|On the road again and I try making my phone call home.|
Just after here Route 66 halted abruptly and we were back
on Interstate Highway 40 which runs right alongside a lot anyway
|After a little way on Highway 40 we saw a sign showing Route 66 again,which was|
also the turn off for Santa Rosa that we were taking to start heading up into
Northern New Mexico.
Just off the Highway was this privately owned museum
|Well worth popping in for the princely sum of $5|
Next time......................... up into the corner of Colorado, Arizona - Monument Valley / Grand Canyon
