We spent last night in Gallup, New Mexico after visiting Albuquerque on our trip from Tucumcari.  I specifically stopped and took Mia to another quilt shop.  This one was one of the nicest we have visited.

While I wait
We had a short trip to Seligman, Arizona today.  Seligman's claim to fame is being the, "Birthplace of Historic Route 66.  Founded in 1886 at the junction of the railroad from Prescott to Santa Fe's mainline.  Prominent banker from New York, Jesse Seligman, was responsible for financing a lot of the railroads business.  Primarily due to the Seligman Chamber of Commerce, the state of Arizona dedicated old U.S. Route 66 from Seligman to Kingman Arizona as Historic Route 66.  The 1987 dedication will preserve the longest remaining section of old Route 66 left in the U.S.

Pictures from Seligman:

I have more pictures but loading them is difficult.  To say the least, this place is set up for the camera bug.  It will be interesting to see what we come across on the way up Route 66 on the way to Kingman tomorrow.

Hope all is well and thanks for stopping by.e preservation of the longest remaining stretch of old Route 66 left in the United States.
