old red tow truck, route 66, cool springs, arizona by 


route 66 passes through arizona on its way to california…here in the desert, just before the first and only uphill climb on the famous route into the mountains, rests cool springs, a small service station now tourist stop (that once offered overnight stays in several cabins)…50 years ago when radiators tended to overheat and tires would regularly go flat, this last outpost before heading into the mountains was a life saver…today with most people avoiding this stretch and using the nearby interstate and with our more technologically advanced cars, cool springs is an interesting oddity from a bygone era…today it provides cold drinks, stories from the past and souveniers to remind passerbys of its once rich historical existence…it is well worth the effort to find your way to this lonely spot on an even lonelier stretch of old route 66…
