2 In Liz Travels: Route 66

“Wild” Life on Route 66

Everything is larger than life on Route 66, from its outsized place in our cultural memory, to the huge “muffler men.”

But there are oversized and joyfully colored critters on the road, too. Some advertise, some are a cities’ whimsical welcomes, and some simply adorn the roadside in front yards. Of course, we have to stop to record them. Or I do anyway. Dash watches the rearview mirror to be sure I don’t get killed in the process.


P.S. A reminder. The images above usually don’t show up on phones. You have to either enable the images for your device, or click on the link to my website. On a phone, swipe the image to bring up the next one. On a tablet or computer, use the arrows on the left and right margins to see additional images.
