Workshop Road Trip :: Route 66

We were really excited to be able to see a few cool things along Route 66. I guess we were not very prepared to take advantage of it because you have to really map out what to see and how to get places since the original road is no longer on current maps and such and will always take you on highway 40. Someday, we are going to really plan it out and take it all the way across the country. We did get to see a few cool things just in this one day so I can’t even imagine how awesome the whole way would be.

After leaving Amarillo we started towards Albuquerque and just a few miles out is the cadillac ranch so we figured we would stop and take a few shots.

The mud around there was crazy! My shoes were slip on so there was nothing keeping me in them when they got stuck in the mud. After a few steps I was taking on more and more mud and could hardly walk around!

Since we were being touristy, might as well have a cheesy photo proving we were there. :) It was so windy and freezing. I shouldn’t complain since its not a miserable blizzard…but the wind was still cold. So there. :)

Next, we started heading towards Albuquerque and took as many of the “historical” exits as we could find. We stopped at this little restaurant in the small town of Adrian Texas which is actually the mid point between LA and Chicago which is pretty cool.

This truck out front was really cool and talked to some people from the town while we were there. The school in their town has a little over 100 kids in it k-12! I find that kind of stuff so awesome. It would be great to grow up in a small town like that. Life is just slower and so much more laid back. I’d love to go back there when we do this trip again and be able to learn more about each place and town. I love to do new things but there really is something so important about knowing how to slow life down sometimes.

Down the road from the restaurant was this awesome truck. I don’t know the story behind it but it looked like every inch of this thing was covered with names and stuff.

After lunch we went the “ghost town” of Glenrio for some photos. It is crazy to be in those places and to think of them when they were alive and running.

This first photo is probably our favorite. I love the lines and the edit is beautiful! Ryan actually edited this one, I am so proud! :)

Since we have very few photos of us together, I am insisting we take as many as we can together on this trip…especially since we are going to so many cool places. So hopefully this is the first of many self portraits. :) AND…who notices whats wrong with this picture? :)

When we got to Albuquerque it was sunset and my goodness, I wish this photo did it justice but the human eye is just so much better than cameras. New Mexico and Arizona has some of the coolest skies I have ever seen!


So that is that. We just arrived in Scottsdale Arizona tonight and are doing another workshop on Tuesday so hopefully we can get caught up on some things tomorrow…like  keeping this blog current!

To end things, I’d like to embaress my dear husband. :) He lost his sunglasses and I just happen to hair two pairs of my favorite sunglasses so I let him borrow mine. Yep. We are twins. hahahaha.
