Route 66 - Driving Back In Time

Route 66 used to run all the way from Santa Monica Beach in Los Angeles towards Chicago. While officially Route 66 no longer exists, the majority of it can still be driven and enjoyed.

I have to say, it was an odd drive onto this iconic highway where we passed through unique landscapes, old mining sites, abandoned towns and some artsy hot spots.

The most memorable part of this trip on this dusty highway was when we got surrounded by donkeys who suddenly started to fight around our car while we were driving through an abandoned miners town that was overgrown by cacti.
