This image was featured in the group, Route 66 – The Mother Road in July, August, & September 2008. An old gas station located on Route 66 in Williams, Arizona is a reminder of a bygone era. First commissioned in 1926, Route 66 was the first highway to link Chicago with Los Angeles. By the 1930’s is was THE way west. John Steinbeck penned it “the mother road” in his work, Grapes of Wrath. Even though many parts of the original road are now gone, there are still remants of Route 66 left to enjoy for those of us who still appreciate the spirit of a good road trip!
