Way Out West: Route 66

I just got back from a road trip along Route 66. We drove down the coast from Oakland to L.A. so we could start the route at it's official end point, in Santa Monica. Then we drove Eastward through California and Arizona trying to travel the original route as much as possible, with only minimal side trips for the Cazabon Dinosaurs and the Grand Canyon. 

This was my first time in the desert and the vistas did not disappoint. My photography skills do not do the scenery justice, but here are some of my personal favorite visuals from the trip.
