Got our kicks on Rte 66

Posted on Monday, August 28th, 2006.

As we drove along historic Route 66 from Amarillo to Kansas City, we drove past some curious roadside attractions.

And let us present to you… The Leaning Tower of Texas just outside of Groom, Texas.

Further out, we saw a wind farm harnessing the plentiful wind on the high plains.

And last but certainly not least, we saw this cross dotting the horizon as we headed east. At 19 stories tall, it is the largest cross in the Northern Hemisphere. Now stay seated, we know the excitement can be overwhelming.
