Day 10 on the road, Flagstaff Az to Kingsman Az and detour to Las Vegas (400 km / 250 miles)

Again, we left early at 7 am, and driving towards Seligman to get on Route 66, and passing towns like, Yampai, Nelson, Peach Springs, Truxton, Crozier, Valentine, Hackberry and Kingman. Most small towns on this part of Route 66 is either capitalising on the former Route 66 glory or completely dilapidated and covered in dust (Steinbeck and Grapes of Wrath comes to mind…). Since the road goes in a half circle above the interstate you can clearly see the lack of traffic and we only saw 5 cars in 2 hours, on a bonus side, you can stop and enjoy the scenery.
