This was my first time in Santa Fe, it was a much prettier and interesting city that I had imagined. The architecture and trees are what stand out immediately. Also, the beautiful mountains that surround the city create an amazing backdrop.

On our way back home to Dallas we noticed signs for Route 66 Midpoint, we didn’t know what that was but there was some very interesting signs and cars there. We pulled over and I got some cool photos of the area. I learned that that city, Adrian, Texas, is the geographical half way point on Route 66. Pretty interesting, it looked like it used to be a very lively spot, it was completely dead while I was there, I didn’t see a single person.
