This Remote Portion Of Route 66 In Arizona Will Take You to A Living Ghost Town
If you’re hoping to head out on a relaxing, scenic drive through Arizona, then you’re in luck because Arizona is home to dozens such roads. You can find some that have pretty views and gentle curves while others may be a little bit unnerving with more than 460 curves! Let’s take a look at another road that is actually a part of Route 66 and will take you to one cool little town.
