My map told me to take a small detour off the I40 freeway to follow the scenic Route 66.
It wasn’t overly scenic. Not in the way I have come to expect from scenic routes in America.
So instead I added additional time and miles to my trip to the Grand Canyon. Whilst Route 66 is the iconic American road trip, I don’t think I’d want to do it solo. I think the strange, zig-zagging path I’m taking is far more interesting.
