re: Some photos from Route 66 / New Mexico trip ( even more images added in OP)
These photographs are excellent, and this is a good discussion.
We are planning my son's senior trip, he wants to go do the Grand Circle Route, so we're going to hit this part of the country, as well.

Tentative plan is to drive through to Amarillo, stay there. Then go onto Moab/Arches N.P. the next day. We hope to get off I 40 at a few of these spots, and actually drive on Route 66....Cadillac Ranch is close to Amarillo, and I see from the map, that the MidPoint of Route 66 is in Adrian, Texas.

Current plan has us turning NW at Albuquerque to go to Four Corners. So a possible stop, late morning, at Santa Rosa sounds cool.

Are you in Baton Rouge? Amarillo is OK, but I would just visit Cadillac Ranch and head on to Tucumcari, 90 minutes west. Book a night at the Blue Swallow and tour that part of Rte 66 the next day, staying in Santa Fe or Albuquerque the next night.

Metairie.
Buddy of mine lives in Katy, travels U.S. 287 to his new home in Mancos, Co. He suggested Amarillo as the stopping point, drive times I've found suggest that's nearly 12 hours, don't want to push it.

Also, want to make Moab the next night.

What were your settings for the Blue Swallow Motel night shot and the second Madrid, NM shot (The Truck)?

Thanks if you see this.
