Route 66 – (2013 Trip) – Day 9 – Amarillo, TX. to Santa Rosa, NM.

We’ll today seen us leave Texas as quickly as we arrived. Today’s also the day we reached the official 1/2 way point of Route 66 at Adrian Texas.

Our trip today took us past Glenrico Texas, a ‘ghost town’ near the New Mexico border. Crossing into New Mexico also seen us change over to Mountain Time.

One thing we’re noticing is the abundance of motels in the bigger towns/cities we pass.

Following the older alignment (frontage roads) makes for some interesting riding. The quality of the road surface changes greatly.
