I took the D300 and 3 film cameras to cover the route from Joplin, MO to OK City. Wish the lighting and sky was better. After using the 18-70 for all, I may get the 18-135 for the extra reach. The 18-200 is a little too expensive, at least for now.

1. Downtown Joplin
2. There's only 13 miles of 66 in KS, but it's cool to cruise.
3. Cars on the Route, a new restaurant/gift shop in Galena KS.
4. Rainbow Bridge near Riverton, KS.
5. This sign is no longer "correct". US 66 was decertified in 1985. This sign was not here during my last visit in 2010. Galena, KS
6. Route 66 Visitor's Center Baxter Springs, KS.
7. This sign had to be moved a few years ago because the new property owner did not want the structure it sat on originally. The Tulsa Foundation for Architecture raised funds and was able to get it moved. I think the neon lights up at night. Tulsa, OK.
8. Sapulpa, about 10 miles west of Tulsa
9. Depew, OK.
