Come with us on an epic road trip to the historic Route 66 town of Holbrook Arizona! I started my adventure riding to the mining town of Jerome AZ to spend the night in a haunted room. Then took a scenic ride through Sedona and Flagstaff to Holbrook. My visit included standing on the corner in Winslow AZ, A Meteor Crater and visiting the Petrified National Forest and Painted Desert. Finally visiting Prescott AZ to perform at the historic Palace Saloon before heading home.
One of our favorite overnights!
Take a short 2 hour drive off the 395 to a dirt road that leads you to a landscape out of a science fiction movie. This 14 square mile area contains over 500 tufa and has been featured in many T.V. shows and movies including the 1960's Lost in Space, 1980's hit Buck Rogers and more recently in Star Trek V, Planet of the Apes and West World.
Living Ghost Town
We took a 10 minute detour to this gem of a ghost town for a quick bite at the general store. Only open Mon-Fri it was a treat to get a homemade cheeseburger and hot dog. Nothing fancy, but the vintage decor and history made it a perfect place for quick stop.
