Continuing with another shot from along the stretch of Route 66 between Kingman, AZ and Needles, CA.  This spot is on the west side of Oatman, AZ as you start to drop into Needles, CA (map).

A major bend in the highway just just outside of Oatman, Arizona.  Interestingly this spot is “East” of Oatman on the highway, but geographically “North” of Oatman.  The road had several curves and switchbacks starting near Cool Springs, Arizona (map).

Continuing west towards Oatman from Cool Springs, I came to the curves in the road you see here.  I knew that I wanted to get a shot of them, but shooting them from road level wasn’t going to work.  I grabbed my hiking boots and started hiking up the nearby hill to see if I could find a good vantage point.  I kept climbing higher and higher until I was at the top of the hill.  At this point I had a good view and could see a good stretch of road, but I wanted a good foreground element.  As I scanned the hillside I spotted this amazing yucca and climbed down to it (map).

My Byways project would not be complete without shots from along The Mother Road included.  To fix this fact, in late September I decided to make a road trip to a stretch of historic Route 66 that stretches from Kingman, Arizona to Needles, California by way of Oatman, Arizona.  I made several stops along the drive and will be sharing several shots from along the way over the next couple days.

This particular shot came from just west of Cool Springs, Arizona.  I could give you a whole history of Cool Springs, but I think it would be better to just link you to their website which is available here (map).
