Route 66 and Alibates Flint Quarries National Monument


Traveling Historic Route 66 was great fun! This was the second full day of our trip and we had a grand time visiting historic places along the way where countless travelers have gone before us.

Beautiful old truss bridge along Route 66. There were dozens of turtles swimming around in the creek below!

Hopefully these turned out well. These panoramic shots were our view from the top of the quarries at Alibates Flint Quarries National Monument.

If you look way off in the distance, you can see our van. We hiked this far to the top of the mesa! (I had to stop several times, but I made it to the top. Yay!)

I told Daniel and Hannah I hope this is the only time they'll be spray painting cars! This was so much fun. :)

Although I'm sure it was gone within the hour, Daniel tried to leave his mark for the Haskins family.

    • Yes, you did it correctly. Good job! I’m sorry I haven’t been able to call. We’ve had VERY limited phone service. Actually, I’ve only been able to call Chris one day. If I have service again, I’ll call you. I love you. 🙂
