Officially began the Route 66 portion of our trip in Needles where we had lunch at the Pirate's Cove resort on the Colorado river. From there we continued to Oatman (where they have the street-wandering burros). For several miles after Oatman the speed limit is 25, as the windy road takes you past some truly spectacular scenery. Who needs the Grand Canyon when you got this stuff?
We made our designated destination of Kingman (if for no other reason than it's in the song) and are staying at another Best Western, and where we enjoyed a local dive bar called the Fireside.
We're going to shoot for Winslow tomorrow, even though that's from a completely different song.
