2012 Route 66 Road Trip - Day 13

Up and out of Santa Fe relatively early that morning, only after stopping at a local organic place for quick breakfast. We were still concerned about all the distance we still had to cover.

This ended up being one of our last non-maintained sections of Route 66... :(

But before too long, we find ourselves in Tucumcari, NM.

We arrived into Texas... the town of Adrian... also known as the halfway point of Route 66. There was even an old cafe in the exact mid-point... and thus the cafe was named.

Some sites while passing through Vega, TX.

We stopped for a little bit to visit the popular Cadillac Ranch, also in Amarillo...

And with the same thought, we also saw the VW Bug Ranch in Claude, TX.

We retired just a little after dark in the town of Groom, TX. The town doesn't seem like much, but it's home to the 190 ft tall illuminated cross that can be seen from... well, everywhere. Rumor has it that people can see it from up to 20-30 miles away.
