Trip Journal of Dream Catcher 66
March 11, AD 2017, a sunny day. embracing the gentle breeze and the bright sunshine, a group of future accountants went on a 3000-mile dream chasing road trip right after our exams. Dream Catcher 66 departed from Notre Dame, Indiana, and drove all the way to the southwest coast, passing by Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and finally touched the dreamland of California. We appreciated the constant change of natural scenery and experienced the culture of the Midwest. Route 66, as a unique highway of the United States, it is still America's mother road.
Wild Exploration in the Midwest
We visited the Gateway Arch, the landmark of St. Louis, Missouri. It was like a gate calling for us to start our trip. Then, we stopped by Kansas and visited a souvenir shop, called Nelson's Old Riverton Store. It was opened in 1925, passing down from generation to generation, not for profit, just to keep the special memory of the Route 66. Therefore, we highly recommend that people who have strong emotional attachment to Route 66 should explore it.
Along the way, we found a restaurant, called Route 66 Diner, with rich 20th-century style and delicious Chicken-Fried Chicken🍗. Afterward, we arrived at the State of Texas, a place full of passion and pride. A steakhouse named The Big Texan Steak Ranch & Brewery🍺 perfectly interpreted the great spirit of Texas. The restaurant has a tradition, the unique and well-known challenge competition, if a person finishes eating the whole 72oz steak🐮 within one hour, he doesn’t need to pay the bill. We were not brave enough to challenge our stomach. So we highly encourage you to try it when you go to this old restaurant.
We then arrived at a symbolic spot of Route 66, Cadillac Ranch, locating on the west side of the city, Amarillo, TX. Created by a group of enthusiastic artists in 1970s to honor the American Automotive industry🚗. Ten classic models of Cadillac were parallel half put in the farm. It was so impressive to have those colorful antique cars, the blue sky, and the golden farm altogether in a picture. It is definitely a great piece of art with great interaction because anyone can paint colors on the cars. If you like painting👄, don’t miss this place! Another remarkable place for you to take pictures is the midpoint of Route 66.
Dream Chasing toward the West Coast
We kept driving until we see the Grand Canyon. Following the orange line, we observed the marvelous scenery of the canyon. Then we took the shuttle of the red line and went to a perfect spot for observation of the unforgettable sunset🌄.
