Route 66 Credits & Contributors


Route 66 Postcard Coloring Book, available at Legends’ General Store.

Robert Garcia is a friend I made through Legends of America.  Robert is an avid ghost owner, and we have swapped stories and information about New Mexico and Arizona ghost towns.  Peppered through some of our New Mexico ghost town articles, you will see several photographs that Robert has contributed to the cause.  Robert was also kind enough to provide some night photos of Route 66 through Albuquerque.  Thanks, Robert!  Robert and his wife Therese live in AlbuquerqueNew Mexico.

Emily Priddy, who is actively involved in the Oklahoma Route 66 Association, has generously allowed us to utilize several of her photographs of the Mother Road.  Thanks, Emily!

Ron Warnick with Route 66 News has provided updates to several of our Route 66 stories and is a great source of “today’s” news about the Mother Road.
