In the year of COVID-19, the open road beckoned when at last I could no longer stay inside. And the perfect road trip for quiet miles of nearly empty roads is Arizona. When I was growing up my parents had a subscription to the magazine Arizona Highways, and I could spend hours looking at the gorgeous photos of canyons, cactus, deserts, mountains and enormous skies. No wonder that Arizona beckoned!
Bill and I decided to take a few days in July to continue our travel on the famous Mother Road – Route 66. In the past we’ve also spent time traveling on the historic US Highway 89 known as the Highway of National Parks, traversing from the Mexico border to the Canadian border.
