Windy and I are having a two day Happy Birthday ME drive along the I-15, Road of Roadside Attractions.
Our first stops were on a bit of old ‘Historic Route 66’ that parallels I-15 for a spell. Wiki: Route 66 “was officially removed from the United States Highway System in 1985 after it had been replaced in its entirety by segments of the Interstate Highway System.” States however have integrated some of the remaining road into their own systems with the ‘Historic Route 66’ designation. Here’s something I didn’t know: “The corridor is also being redeveloped into US Bicycle Route 66, a part of the United States Bicycle Route System that was developed in the 2010s.”
There’s a blip in the road, at this point also named National Trails Highway, where some enterprising folk have made a Roadside Attraction out of the nostalgia surrounding Route 66.
It feels like a home-made project, not one thing that says corporate about this operation.
