Photo of the Week - April 9, 2012


We were driving back to California from Taos last month. Had quite a few miles to go to get to Kingman and the sun was starting to get pretty low in the sky. I was focused on getting down the road when Chris pointed out the Wigwam Motel from the freeway. With the great light....I had to pull over. I love this place! It's on the old Route 66 highway, tons of old nostalgic history. When I was a kid, my family drove through here every summer heading back to Indiana. I do remember stopping here at least once back in the 60's, and I think we did stay one night. My dad had an 8mm movie camera, and there is a part of our 1963 trip that has my brother and I running around one of the tipi's. I need to break out that movie and see if I can spot which one it was. Hope you enjoy.
