Second Time Around...Road Trip Day One

We headed out I-8 to Gila Bend - there was no drama in Arizona, except the occasional dodging of illegals trying to cross the highway. We then made our way up to Flagstaff with a few sprinkles of rain.

Wide open road...

Like a scene from Arizona Highways - Teepees in Arizona

Then into New Mexico, stopping for the night in Gallup on Old Route 66. We're bunkin in at the historic El Rancho Hotel.

The El Rancho opened in 1937 and from the beginning it was a gathering place for the famous. Drawn by the many films made in the area were Ronald Regan, Spencer Tracy, Katherine Hepburn, and Kirk Douglas. These were just a few of the many starts listed in the guest register.
