Oatman, Arizona – Old Wild West Mining Town

 

Nearing the end of Route 66 during our Route 66 Cross Country Adventure we took a curvy road through the hills past Kingman Arizona and stumbled upon the old mining town of Oatman, Arizona. We had no prior knowledge of this town, so coming across it was quite a treat and it quickly became our favorite city on Route 66.

Point of Interest | 1 – Rochford, South Dakota

 
Now somewhere in the black mountain hills of Dakota…

…lies an old gold mining town called Rochford. Although the town has only about a dozen residents they are some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. I’ve stopped through the town on two different trips and have been given newspaper to start fires and even offered a place to stay by multiple residents when they found out I was on my own, driving across […]
