    • Hi Holly. Old Route 66, now I-40, goes through Albuquerque. The Pan American Freeway, I-25, goes through Albuquerque, also. They cross at the Big-I interchange.

      • That is really cool. I’d like to do a photo tour of Old 66 some day. There’s a section of Old 66 in Tijeras canyon east of Albuquerque that has a rumble strip that plays America The Beautiful when you drive 45 mph on it. Here’s a video someone driving on it: https://youtu.be/6l2vSsavVZs.

      • That’s awesome Timothy , thanks for the great link. 66 is truly an American landmark. I hope you get to take that photo tour, it would be amazing. That would make an excellent book subject with those photographs, I’d put that right on my coffee table!

      • I’ve made several trips west on I-40 in the past few years that I had planned to take some time photograph some of the dissapearing landmarks on Old 66, but then got off schedule and didn’t have time. I’m going to have to make Old 66 the destination with no schedule to make it work for a photo tour.

    • Hi Tiffany. I don’t think the building is for sale at the moment. I don’t know what they are going to do with it.
