Getting our kicks on Oklahoma’s Route 66

Vintage gas station on Route 66, Oklahoma (Scarborough photo)In our drive across Oklahoma from Duncan to Pawhuska, we only had time for one little smidgen of the Mother Road; the famous Route 66 that runs across the United States from Chicago to Los Angeles.

We hopped off of the Interstate between Oklahoma City and Tulsa.

It was late in the afternoon, so many places were closed, but it was still a lot of fun to see the original motels and vintage gas stations, and drive a nice, curvy, pretty road instead of the ugly freeway.

Check out this Legends of America Web site for detailed info on each part of Route 66, and drive a bit of it if you ever have an opportunity.
