Route 66, the California Desert

Pictures from October 2002, north of San Bernardino to Victorville to Amboy to Needles and beyond.

Most of the old alignment, which changed from time to time, has been paved over. However, you can literally drive on the old road east of Cadiz. Look on the south side and you will see stretches of the pavement that Jack Kerouac passed over in Lew Welch's Jeep in 1959.

I also found some sections in the NE quadrant of I-40 and US 95 intersection, off road. See photos 323-332.
