I must say that being in blog land last week was just about killing me! I am not usually a very jealous person, but dang it, I really wanted to go to VLV again this year! Unfortunately, the finances were just not there. So lucky you, you get to relive the best vacation I've ever had in my life just to make me feel a little better.
Last year, my boyfriend, John, and I decided to go to VLV for the first time. As if that wasn't enough, we figured that if we were going to take the chance to go out west, we would take a road trip down Route 66!
Whoo Hoo! We were officially on Route 66. A nice couple, calling themselves "the fun police" actually pulled over to take our picture in front of the sign. Kinda funny!
We drove down the loneliest, most beautiful stretch of Route 66, between Needles, CA and Oatman, AZ, listening to Slim Whitman's Indian Love Call. So cliche. I love it!
If you are looking for a outlaw western town, Oatman is the place! No kidding, these donkeys that run around the town are left over from when it was an old mining town.
Right outside of Oatman was, by far, the most romantic lookout I've ever seen!
I had to take advantage of the opportunity to do some cheesy posing at the historic Cool Springs Gas Station.
Well, that was the first leg of the trip. I will be showing more photos this week.
