Since I don't have a classic car from the Route 66 era, and the weather is much too chilly to drive along Route 66 with the top down, I opted for walking the Route 66 10K walk hosted by a local AVA (non-competitive walking) club
. I found out that if you slow down and take things one step at a time you will certainly see more. Often the history of a place is evident in the details. As I walked downtown Flagstaff
, I was able to read the historic plaques on Route 66 buildings and stop and marvel at some of the old business signs. The Museum Club
, whose sign is pictured here, has been a Route 66 roadhouse for many a decade and still brings in the customers with their live music and bar food. And, as any good roadhouse should be, it is a ways out of town... out east on Route 66.
