There were virtually no other tourists so there was no one to take a pic of us together. Gail believes they were all in Sedona packed in the campsites.
We aren't actually in Winslow tonight but have to get caught up on sharing pictures....so here we go. In these pics you will see Gail and Sue standing on the corner. There are murals painted on the sides of the buildings that look almost life-like. There is very little that keeps the town going these days since Interstate 40 took over for the infamous Route 66. There were only 2 little souvenir shops opened on Memorial Day (besides Denny's) when we first arrived. The trains still travel thru Winslow several times every day as they cross east-west corridor of northern Arizona. Gail had been singing Take it Easy since we arrived in this part of the state...so of course, we had to buy an Eagles CD so we could listen to the whole song.
A real-life muralIt was quite funny to stand and have our pics taken because the mural behind us was almost life-like. You can see a couple kissing in the second floor window.
TrainsWe heard the trains a'coming...day and night. Gail loves the sound of trains.
The demise of Route 66One of many hotels that enjoyed a booming tourist industry in the 1950's and 60's. Now a lost piece of Americana...we have no idea what people in Winslow do for a living now.
More demiseWhile it look like an old abandoned house, there is evidence with the Rubbermaid bin in the front that people still live in this house.
More art workWe aren't certain of the origin of this piece but it looks like it may have been done around the time the hotel was built and reproduced or the original came back to it's proper place of rest.
