    You really need a good guide book to Route 66. I would suggest doing a web search to find the Route 66 Foundation. There are several...some specific to each state and some for the entire route.

    Default 2003 -- Historical Fact Finding Trip

    There is a superb Route 66 web site. Earlier this year the Rte 66 Caravan traveled the entire route route from the Santa Monica Pier in California to the Navy Pier in Chicago, Illinois. They also posted images and articles from the various stops along the way. This <a href= "http://www.cart66pf.org/66caravan/schedule.htm">page</a> is that site's schedule index and is a good place to start your query. Plus, RTA maintains a <a href = "http://www.roadtripamerica.com/links/route66.htm">Rte 66 resource page</a>.

    If you like Sedona you will love New Mexico-We just drove from Texas to California this summer in 2 weeks-it was wonderful-Lots to see and do in New Mexico,lots I would write their visitors center and get the parks and places to hike information. We stayed in Santa Fe for 3 days and it was not near enough time- it is a gorgeous place-do not waste your time hiking up canyon road to see the art you will have more fun hiking in the parks-we did both and nature was more rewarding-A must is Bandelier National Park in Los Alamos,NM. You can hike back and see part of where they lived and the part of their living quarters they stayed in in cold weather-where they dug cave like rooms out of the cliffs- you can actually go in them, and see drawings they made on the wall -
