I'm driving east bound on Route 66 in a few weeks. Starting from Oatman and eventually heading as far as Seligman.
I'm reading about the part of Route 66 that heads and winds through the Black Mountains. Do I need to be overally concerned about driving through this scenic, yet somewhat dangerous part of Route 66?
My thinking is:
1. Just go slow, take my time so I don't make any mistakes and go off the mountain lol
2. I'm headed east bound, so I will have the mountainside to my right. Most people driving Route 66 are headed west so in most cases through the Black Mtns. they have nothing on the right of them besides maybe an old guard rail in some sections.
Has anyone driven through the Black Mountains of Arizona? How was it? It is January so I'm assuming if they had a snowstorm on that road they would probably close it down like they do some of the roads into the Grand Canyon?
Any tips/advice would be helpful. I'm really looking forward to Oatman, Kingman, and Seligman. This is the only part of my Route 66 drive I'm still somewhat apprehensive about.
