    Historic Route 66

    August 5, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 38 °C

    Day 34: I spent my day on the historic Route 66 today.
    First I visited the Grand Canyon Caverns (okay, yesterday wasn't the last part of canyons). Once they found bones of dinosaurs there. The cavern may be the oldest, deepest, darkest, largest and quietest.
    The next stop was Kingman. I'm happy that I spent my night in Seligman. That town is definitely more historical. Kingman is more commercially than historical.
    Afterwards I stayed on the Route 66 and reached Oatman. That town was such amazing! Oatman is an old gold mining town which is crossed by the Route 66. An old town with old shops, saloons, restaurants, ..., that is still alive! One cool thing is that there are wild mules which cross the street and live in the town.
    Then I continued and the ride was just epic! The Route 66 crossed the desert. I had just me, my car, an incredible wideness and country music of course! Just thru the middle of nowhere how they used to say! #lifeisgood #travelingisgood
    After all I got to Lake Havasu and had a look at the Old London Bridge.
    Tonight I decided to book for this and the upcoming night in El Centro a lodge room which is quiet the same price like a campground.
