Photo Series: My Favorite Moments Driving Route 66

Life is comprised of brief moments of outstanding audacity, interrupted by months or even years of routine and the predictable. It’s for these flashes that we live for, it’s for these instances that in many times define our lives and for me one such occasion happened two years ago as I fulfilled a lifelong mission to explore more of my remarkably confusing but beautiful country by driving Route 66. I’ll write something a little more profound soon, but today I want to reflect on that incredible drive through just some of the many thousands of photos I captured during those two weeks.

Once again, a VERY special thanks to Marriott International for sponsoring this great adventure. Every night we spent the night in a different Marriott International brand hotel and without them, would not have been able to realize this dream.

  1. So glad I was able to travel the route in my ’66 Corvette in April 1968. SO MUCH of what I saw/experienced are lost to present travelers. Driving thru’ centers of old villages, having to stop while sheep were herded across the old 2-lane, the neon signs of the old travel courts, once the sun set, and being only 22 years old.

    1. I can imagine it was much more authentic back then… But I guess we can’t turn back the time and it still looks like a trip worth taking.

  2. Amazing places… I’d love to take this Route 66 road trip when we can travel again. How much time do you need to truly experience the drive and places along the way? Was 2 weeks enough?
