I started my trip across the country from Los Angeles to Washington, DC on July 11, 2006. I planned to take Route 66 and portions of the Santa Fe Trail. My first day I started on I-10, I-15 and I-40. Somewhere in the high Mojave Desert I got on Route 66 and took the Mother Road into Arizona. It took forever but it was very scenic. I passed through a town called Daggett. Funny enough, the only spot in town with any signs of life is the cemetary.
