[tmt_info =””]Route 66 is mostly frontage road between Clinton and Elk City, and again between Elk City and Sayre. Through downtown Elk City, the route is easy: just follow the I-40 Business Loop.[/tmt_info]
I stopped for a minute to walk downtown, not so much to take a picture of the landmark derrick, but rather…
… to try to figure out why, in a window nearby, Godzilla is apparently attacking a Route 66 shield. If anyone can explain that one, I’d love to hear it.
The rest of Elk City’s downtown is somewhat uneventful. Or, maybe it was just me. After all, at this point, I had walked through at least a couple dozen small-town downtowns, and they were all starting to run together.
