So cute! there were hundreds of these guys on this part of the drive.

Cute tummy.

Checking out their surroundings.

We were actually able to eat here! In the middle of nowhere!

Land. Well played.

Very old 66.

Tree in the middle of the road.

It’s hard to see but there’s a cow and her baby under that big bushy tree.

Seligman, AZ.

IMG_7821

We ate snow cones here.

I have a really strong hatred for Betty Boop. I just don’t get why she’s a thing.

IMG_7823

Eric bought a real Route 66 road sign here!

IMG_7826

Cars.

IMG_7830

Grand Canyon Caverns! Yes we took the tour! I love me some caverns.

IMG_7843

They actually have concerts underground! And there’s a hotel room you can rent! Sadly it was booked the night we were there or I think we would have spent way too much money to sleep underground.

It was a really clear night at our campsite. I tried some long exposure photography.

IMG_7870

And I caught a passing train!

Bert’s Country Dancing.

I love this section of 66.

Eric really wants a car just like this.

IMG_7913

Hackberry General Store. We bought some old license plates here and I bought some old Arizona Highways magazines.

On the way to Oatman, AZ!

IMG_7948

Watch out for wild burros!

IMG_7970

I love the desert. There was actually water coming from a spring here. And there were goldfish in the water!

IMG_7982

A popular place to spread ashes. They have quite the view.

IMG_7986

Welcome to Oatman!

IMG_7987

i told you there were wild burros!

IMG_7991

This gal was very pregnant.

IMG_8007

The burros are somewhat tame. They always expect you to give them treats. Most of the stores in town sell treats for the burros. Some of the really young babies had little notes taped to their heads that said…”Don’t feed me!” They just need mama’s milk.

IMG_8012

Look at those big ears!

IMG_8014

It was soooo hot here! I was one sweaty beast.

IMG_8025

Just hanging out on the stoop snoozing.
