We love this time of year in Arizona, which is Pen Chalet’s base of operations. The sun is out, the weather is absolutely postcard perfect and the smell of grass and spring is in the air as Major League Baseball and spring training comes to town.
Another one of the fabulous things to do during the spring in Arizona is to take a road trip and drive up North and experience some of Arizona’s amazing beauty such as the Grand Canyon and Sedona. While up in Northern Arizona, a favorite activity is to wander back in time along a portion of the famous Route 66 highway, which is 90 years old now, connecting the city of Chicago in the Midwest to the Pacific Ocean in Santa Monica. This iconic American highway plays a role in our history, allowing goods, services and most importantly people to reach the West and new hope after the devastation caused in the heartland by the dust bowl in the 30’s and the further expansion of our Nation after World War II.
Route 66, which has been depicted through many forms of media including most recently Disney’s Cars animated movie. Long stretches of lonely highway, intersected by small towns, which thrived during Route 66’s heyday as travelers and masses of people passed through to California.
