Lake Pleasant, AZ High 91 Low 68
I’ve already shared most of our Las Vegas Adventure with you. After swimming our way home from the Vet’s office, we left the girls snug and dry and went to visit our friend Steve. Turns out he had parent-teacher conferences all evening (he teaches Special Ed) but Peter was home and we got to catch up with him for a couple of hours.
Went to Dessy’s for dinner (they have a fantastic salad bar) and back to the rig. Left the next morning and stopped at the Blake Ranch RV Park about 12 miles east of Kingman, AZ.
It was early afternoon and I just can’t pass up a chance to do some exploration. We drove out Route 66 to Hackberry.
Hackberry is a former mining town that became a ghost town when I-40 by passed the town in 1978.
In 1992 the Hackberry General Store was reopened as a Route 66 information post.
If you're a fan of historic Route 66, a visit to Hackberry should be a "must-do" if you're visiting this part of Arizona.
We headed back down Route 66 to the Route 66 Museum on Andy Devine Blvd in Kingman, AZ.
Only problem is, we got there about 4:45 and they close at 5:00. They let us in without paying the $3 entrance fee and we made a quick dash through the museum. It’s not very big and there is a lot of reading which we skipped.
Here are a couple of pictures that we took.
Next stop – Lake Pleasant, AZ.
