Route 66 – Albuquerque, New Mexico (Post 1936)

Our motorhome is still parked at VFW Post #401 here in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Yesterday Mary and I took the Bronco and wandered along Route 66 that passes right through the middle of Albuquerque…and is also known as Central Avenue. This portion of Route 66 was developed in 1937 after realignment of the old Route 66 reduced the mileage through New Mexico by more than 100 miles.

Today the current Route 66 is still lined with a number of old motels and shops built in the 1930,s and 1940’s. Sometimes the buildings are gone…but the signs remain. Here are some of the photos that I took…

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view...

Despite the blazing sun and searing 85 degrees it was still fun taking the nostalgic trip on Route 66.

Visiting old historic roadways is another joy of the full-time RVing lifestyle.

    Just like a guy. You get your lady back and all you can think of is “Motels”. :)

      Are you implying that you and Bob don’t do motels?

        Only when we go back to Ohio. Don’t stay with the KIDS.
