And we do have so much to be thankful for. So many are suffering because of hurricanes, earthquakes, health issues etc. Our thoughts are with them.
After a stroll in old town Albuquerque, we have breakfast at Church St. café. Enchanting!
Today is a short day but we still manage to have to make a U-turn at one point. Route 66 follows I-40 (and as always, the railroad tracks)
but we zigzag from the north side to the south side of the interstate numerous times. At one point we choose the I-40 to avoid unpaved highway. Dan gets his kicks on Route 66 by driving the 56 Ford Wagon, just for a bit ha!
We pass lava rock, many ruinous remains, trading posts and at one of them, we reach the Continental Divide.
New Mexico has been the most scenic part of the route so far.
In Gallup, we check in at the El Rancho Hotel. Opened in 1936, it is a National Historic Site. Some do laundry. Linda and Sandra help a biker from Sweden ooerate the washing machines:) Others find a local garage to have minor repairs done to the cars. Is it possible? We did not visit a classic car museum today…
Arizona, here we come!
