Cruising With Ariat

Cruising Route 66 with Ariat and looking at some of the most historic points of interest! I have always wanted to travel a major part of Route 66. As a result this summer armed with my Ariat cruisers I will travel an extended part of Route 66.

Cruising From Lubbock To Amarillo

10017457

Day one of my journey on Route 66 takes me to Amarillo, Texas and I will be wearing Cruiser style 10017457. The In addition, the soft palm brown color is very neutral and I LOVE the lime and turquoise accents. These shoes will be perfect for walking the Historic West 6th Ave. There are many antique stores and places of interest and my feet feel fabulous because these shoes are so comfortable!

Cruising From Amarillo To Albuquerque

Cruising

10019893

Albuquerque welcomed the Madonna of the Trail monument with open arms.  The Monument was in the city’s McClellan Park facing Route 66, the main highway through the city. The history of this Monument is that she is one of Twelve Identical Statues marking the Old Trails Road. The National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) erected these statues across the country during late 1920s. My Aunt was a member of the DAR and this is necessary stop for me! I’m wearing the super comfortable 10019893 by Ariat in a light metallic color! These shoes are so light weight and cushioned on the inside, like walking on air.

Cruising From Albuquerque To Houck

10019898

Finally, leaving Albuquerque for about a 175-mile journey to Houck, Arizona and for this leg of the journey I’m wearing 10019898! In addition to being lightweight these have a padded insole to keep you comfortable all day. Furthermore we are still on the famed Route 66 and moving right along to a picturesque bridge across Querino Canyon. In addition to a rugged and beautiful canyon, the bridge is a great example of early highway truss design. Furthermore, this bridge is 77 feet long, 20 feet wide, and comprised of a concrete-decked steel trestle with three Pratt deck trusses supported by steel piers.As a result the concrete abutments support the bridge from below and steel lattice guardrails typical of the period line the roadway. In addition, the Querino canyon bridge remains intact today and was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.
