This is an item on my Bucket List….seeing “The Corner in Winslow, Arizona,” sang in the Eagles song. I don’t know why, just one of those things. I was sooo looking forward to it.
Driving north through Arizona was a altitude challenge…man, that is quite a climb! Sun City is about 1,200 feet and we climbed up to 6,600 feet….down to 5,000…back up…like a roller coaster ride. Don’t like those 6% grades.
Once we got to Winslow I realized it was on Route 66, news to me.
So Jim and I HAD to take the pose at that infamous corner
(Click on the photo of Jim….and notice what Poncho was doing)….oops!
We were a little disappointed that there wasn’t much more to Winslow. I did hit one of the souvenir stores for postcards, but outside of this pretty mural, we didn’t see much else driving around.
We were going to spend the night at the Elks Club, which was suppose to have RV sites with electric….not! Plus I wasn’t getting good vibes about the place, so we moved on towards Petrified Forest National Park, about 30 miles up the road. Plus Joe and Marcia J. text saying they were already there waiting for us. Onward we went.
Remember, you are loved.
