Miscellaneous Pictures

The following are pictures from the Deserts & Mountains Trip that do not fit on any other page. These may include pictures from other roads that I spent just a couple minutes on (such as getting onto Interstate 76 in Denver for a couple miles and it was not in the trip plan). Also included are pictures from my time spent near Avila Beach, California.


Day One
Monday, June 23, 2003

OK 6 South at Interstate 40 West in Elk City.
The Motel 6 of Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Day Two
Tuesday, June 24, 2003

NM 556 North at Interstate 40 West in Albuquerque.
View from the end of the off-ramp from Interstate 40
West at Exit 149 for Historic Route 66. The signs
in this area look like they are older than I am.
After taking a left turn and crossing Interstate 40,
the road intersects Interstate 40 East. Notice the
white Interstate 40 shield and the greenout where a
U.S. 66 shield once called home on the top half
of the sign.
A little further down the road, the road intersects
Historic Route 66. Again, notice the blank space
and the very old Interstate 40 shield.
Now looking westbound on Historic Route 66.
The street crossing the historic route is the same
street that I was on for the previous two pictures.
A stop sign with a couple extra words, this
"Complete Stop Please" sign is seen as motorists
depart the Giant Travel Center off Exit 39 of
Interstate 40.
AZ 89A South approaching Interstate 40 - 1 mile,
in Flagstaff, Arizona.
AZ 89A South approaching Interstate 40 - 1/4

mainline highway becomes Interstate 17 ahead.

The Motel 6 of Kingman, Arizona.

U.S. 93 North at Interstate 40 West.
Normally, I don't take pictures of furniture stores
unless a road sign is in front of it, but this one in
Palmdale, California, caught my attention because
a good friend of mine has the same name.
The Motel 6 of San Luis Obispo, California.
"END CA 227" sign at the highway's western
end at U.S. 101 in San Luis Obispo.
A view of the Avila Beach area.
I'm surprised this picture didn't break the
camera! Anyways, yes, that is the webmaster of in this picture, with the Pacific
Ocean looming behind him. Just a little over a
month later, I took a picture of me with the
Atlantic Ocean behind me.
"Speed Limit 40" sign near Avila Beach.
Waves crashing at the Pacific Ocean.
View of the area surrounding the beach.

Interstate 76 East.
The Holiday Inn Express of Colby, Kansas.
