FAQ 9 A Vacation Guide to Old Route 66

FAQ 9 Arizona Vacation Guide on Old Route 66. 

Good morning. Although the temperature in Phoenix is a blazing 107 degrees (F) in Black Mesa it's 80 degrees (F) today. You can count on the temperature here is twenty degrees cooler than the Salt River Valley. It is better known to Maricopa County residents as 'The Valley,' and the Mogollon (Pronounced Muggy-yon) rim better known as 'Up the Hill." ( 10,000 foot to 12,000 foot hill). 

In my novel, Murder@ the Black Mesa Cafe, the Petrified Forest, Painted Desert, Meteor Crater, Sunset Crater are all about a days ride from Phoenix. Don't forget my imaginary town of Black Mesa is located on old Route 66 outside the Petrified Forest. Visit the little towns in Arizona along Route 66 for a flavor of the Black Mesa Cafe. Lots of little Mom and Pop diners.

A great place to stay is in Holbrook at the Wigwam Motel near old route 66, even though Minerva thought the place was tacky. I think she was hot, tired and thirsty. She needed a big sweet tea to refresh her. Try out the places in my book. The Wigwam is real as is the great little Mexican restaurant in Holbrook.

Minerva's husband Michael loves old cars from the 50's and 60's. They took a romantic side trip to stay at the Wigwam Motel in Holbrook so Michael could check out the cars.
