An artistic take on this often photographed sign on the Santa Monica Pier, in Santa Monica, California. Although the sign says it’s the “End of the Trail,” is it really? Or is it the beginning of more Route 66 adventures? *FREE Shipping in the USA
Vega, Texas is a little town located on Route 66. Although there are other photo worthy sights in Vega, we had to hit the brakes when we saw this old pickup parked by the Route 66 sign. We quickly discovered we weren’t the only one captivated by the scene, as other folks were stopping to photograph it as well.
The Beginning of Route 66 welcomes road-trip explorers in Chicago, IL. With the official establishment of US66 on November 11, 1926, Illinois then became the first state to completely pave a section of Route 66.
I photographed the current “real” signs for each state Route 66 travels through. (You can buy knock off state signs which all look alike, black and white) But the signs on this shirt are the real and current ones you’ll see while traveling the Route. Texas and Arizona did not have the state identifiers on them, so we added it to make sure they were represented. The signs were artfully displayed inside a Route 66 shield. The design is displayed on an American made shirt. The color of the shirt is asphalt. THIS shirt is a one of a kind Route 66 shirt and you won’t find it anywhere else.
In its heyday, Cadiz Summit in California must have been a welcoming sight after driving through the Mohave Desert on Route 66. One could buy gas, get water for their overheating vehicle, dine in a cafe, or even stay the night in a cabin. All of that in 1 spot. Today, almost nothing remains of those businesses…a small amount of intact concrete blocks, covered with graffiti…But the incredible view of the desert from the summit will always be there for us to enjoy.
