“Pops” and Route 66!!!!

Tuesday morning greetings from Las Cruces, New Mexico!!!

I hope that you had a safe and fun 4th of July weekend!!!!!!

On my way down here to Las Cruces, I was able to travel along part of old Route 66 and for those of you that didn’t know it, that was “the” road back in the day and it ran all the way from Chicago to Los Angeles!!!! Long before the interstates that we now have was the “Mother Road” and it was one of the only ways to get across the country!

One of the pleasant surprises of the trip just outside of Oklahoma City is a small town called Arcadia and in that town is a place called “Pops“! For those of you that love soda, this place is the cat’s meow!!!!! They have 600 flavors of soda, so if you can’t find it here, they probably don’t make it!!!! One of the cool things as well is the 66 foot high soda bottle (66 foot high bottle on Route 66, get it?) that lights up at night! I was there on a Friday night an the place was packed!!!!!! It’s worth a stop if you’re ever in the area!

I put together a quick time lapse at sundown and you can see the bottle lighting up and changing colors!

It’s time to run, I’ve got some nature photography to do here in the desert!!!!! I hope that you have a great rest of the week as always and thanks for checking out my work!!!!!
