Seligman, Arizona and Route 66

Last winter Mrs. Marathon Pundit visited Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon. On our way back from the latter--we spent a final night in Vegas--we stopped in Seligman, Arizona for a fill up.

John Lasseter, director of Cars, says that the Radiator Springs town in the Disney film was loosely based on Seligman.

As for the sign, Seligman is not the birthplace of Route 66, but it could perhaps be the birthplace of historic Route 66.

"The Mother Road" was decomissioned in 1985

I figured a travel post was due because of Labor Day weekend. Happy driving--despite the high gasoline prices--and be safe!
