On the Road to Arizona


Abandoned Trailer along the highway

Driving between Albuquerque and the Petrified Forest Park in Arizona, one cannot help but notice the extreme amount of poverty along the highway. Towns, if they can be called that, appear to be nothing more than collection of trailers group together with some rudimentary roads. While we never stopped (they were not directly accessible since we were on the Interstate), we wondered about the people who lived there. The conditions of their homes, while they seemed to work for the desert, were in very bad shape.
I never did take any pictures of these homes, but I didshoot some things along the frontage road. I believe this was along the old Route 66 and perhaps the frontage roads were the remnants of that famous historical highway.
