Inspired by signcollector’s post on Holbrook, Arizona’s Wigwam motel, I had to share some of my photos from Spring 2010 when I slept in a wigwam. Sleeping in a wigwam was just one marvelous stop on a great Rte. 66 journey. And as you will see at the end of the post, I caught some mighty big dreams too. Gotta dream big is what I say!Rusty Blazenhoff of Alameda wrote this to the Alameda Sun in April: “As a child, our family traveled Route 66 a few times and I became enamored with the Wigwam Motel in Holbrook, Ariz. We never got to be motel guests back then and now, 20-something years later, I got my opportunity. I finally got to spend a night in the wonderfully kitschy Wigwam Motel and I can now cross it off my ‘bucket list’. It was almost exactly as I had imagined it and I got to bring a little piece of home with me on the journey, the Alameda Sun.”
- Ain’t it a beaut?
