Primitive roads January 29, 2011

Posted by Ron Warnick in Highways, History, Road trips, Web sites.

Here’s something fun: A two-part video about the primitive alignment of Route 66 at La Bajada Hill in New Mexico by a brave soul to drove it in an SUV.

Here’s a short clip on the Cuervo Cut-off of Route 66, near Cuervo, N.M.

A drive on Oatman Road (aka Route 66) to Sitgreaves Pass in western Arizona’s Black Mountains:

And here’s a short clip of driving up Tucumcari Mountain near Tucumcari, N.M. We hiked the mountain by foot a few years ago.

These videos will be part of Richard Dinkela’s website HookedonRoute66.com, which should launch sometime next week, he said.

Right now I am building a Route 66 virtual tour based off google maps and my own photography. I have a lot of exciting things to bring to the people of 66 this year.

I’m looking forward to seeing it.

UPDATE: New video was posted on the Tucumcari Mountain drive.
