During our visit to the USA back in 2015, part of our journey by coach was driving down parts of Route 66. We visited a place called Hackberry and our tour guide told us, that when they opened the Interstate the flow of traffic that went through Hackberry and other small places, stopped overnight. And these small towns were turning into ghost towns, with many places closing down, including the Hackberry gasoline station.

    1. To think when the interstate opened that part of route 66 became a ghost town overnight.


        1. When we went to the USA we drove along Route 66 to Hackberry and our guide told us that it didn’t happen gradually it was overnight. Such a shame… But I like the look of the old town.


          1. The old gasoline place has rusty old cars outside… In fact they are quite photogenic.


          2. I love the old rusry cars! 🧓🏻

  4. Hi Bren, This looks typically Route 66 with that big Phillips 66 sign. The US has its own charm and distinctive look – rustic and unsophisticated. We have gone on parts of Route 66 and live about 3 miles from the nearest junction with Route 66. Thanks for sharing this with PPAC this week.

      1. Thanks so much for sharing your walk, Bren. 🙂


  5. What fun! Your title first caught my eye as there’s a Hackberry Tea in Chandler, Arizona. Then the Rt. 66 got my attention and lo and behold, Hackberry is in Arizona. 🙂 As my husband is really interested in Rt. 66, we’ll have to be sure to visit here. Thanks!

    1. When we went in 2015… The old gasoline station was standing with old cars… It was quite nostalgic.
