Road Trip to Winslow, Arizona on Route 66!

Did you all notice the featured image for my Bucket List page is Route 66?  I can’t explain the excitement I felt cruising down this road.

Standing on a Corner in Winslow, Arizona

Take It Easy ~ The Eagles ~ Written by Glenn Frey & Jackson Browne

Well, I’m a standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona
And such a fine sight to see
It’s a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed Ford
Slowin’ down to take a look at me

I loved, loved this!






We stopped here at RelicRoad Brewing Company for lunch ~ the burger was excellent and the chips were fantastic!  We ate it all.

Meteor Crater

Over 50,000 years ago, an 150-foot wide iron nickel meteorite hit earth and left this crater.  Located just off of Route 66 west of Winslow, Meteor Crater was cool.



It was a very windy afternoon!



Apache Death Cave

A little bit futher down Route 66 is a ghost town called Two Guns along with a haunted cave.  It was only the two of us there and it was a little creepy when we were by the cave.  It did not look safe to try to enter.  If I’m honest, if it did look safe, I don’t think I would have had the courage to go down in it.

The battles between the Navajos and the Apaches were constant. The group of Apache warriors hid in a cave located in Two Guns. In 1878, they attacked a Navajo camp and murdered everyone with the exception of three Navajo girls who were taken as prisoners. The Apaches not only murdered the Navajos, whom they raided, they also looted the area. The Navajos from another camp sent warriors after the Apaches, however they failed in their quest to find them. When the Apaches attacked another Navajo camp, the Navajo warriors went to Canyon Diablo and saw hot air coming out of the ground.

After taking a closer look, the Navajos discovered that there was a cave and that the raiding Apaches were hiding in it with their horses. The Navajos began to throw burning drywood into the cave. The Apaches then slit the throats of their horses in an attempt to put out the fire after they ran out of water. When the Navajos found out from an Apache who came out of the cave, that the three Navajo girls were murdered, they threw him into the fire and murdered 42 Apaches in the cave. The cave became known as the “Apache Death Cave”.  ~ Wikipedia
