Caption

This is a secluded spot along the 1930s Route 66 in the Kaibab National Forest.

At one time this was the main East-West route for vehicle traffic in the Southwest United States. Now abandoned, this section of Route 66 now has been re-purposed as a recreational hiking, riding, & bicycle path through the National Forest.

While it appears secluded, the sound in the area shows it is still part of a main transportation corridor with the normal forest sounds mixing with the dull roar of vehicles passing on the interstate and the horns and squeals of the railroad. Nearby are the remains of the 1857 Beale Wagon Road, the abandoned 1920s Route 66 alignment, the still-used 1940s Route 66 alignment, Interstate 40, and the mainline Burlington-Northern-Sante Fe Railroad line.
