The adventure continues...

Well day four of our trip has finally come to an end. It was a long day filled with some really awesome sights. We saw what some consider to be the best part of Route 66 as we drove through Texas and New Mexico. We photographed the famous Cadillac Ranch, drove through Glenrio ghost town, explored Motel row in Tucamcari and saw some of the old motels and cafe's, stopping off at the Frontier Restaurant to get some delicious sticky buns, in Albuquerque.

Today was incredibly windy, but other than that it was a lot of fun. We pulled off of I-40 to jump back on the 66 somewhere back in Texas and we saw a little turtle chillin' in the road. So as I photographed the historic Route 66 sign, Rob came to the turtle's rescue by removing him from the middle of the road. The turtle happily repaid him by peeing on him. Maybe next time he'll let him stay in the

Here are some photos from today:
