Historic Route 66 -- Yet Another Reason to Buy Land in Northern Arizona!

Willow Creek Ranch, a 45 square-mile area with 36 to 77-acre parcels for sale in lies south of Peach Springs just north of I-40, about 25 miles to Seligman to start your Route 66 trip back in time.   

Buy your own property at Willow Creek Ranch -- erect a modular or set up your RV or tents and visit the scenic west from your own private get-a-way.  Vacation day trips in Northern Arizona abound.   One very unusual day trip would be following The Maser Road as it crosses the state:Route 66 Across Arizona

Let's start in Seligman.  This town retains all the flavor and flavors of the old road.  It is as if you are back when Route 66 was America's Main Street.  Founded in 1895 this railroad camp (Prescott Junction) became Seligman and the tourist traffic from travelers became the town's main source Famous Snow Cap Drive In Seligman Arizonaof income. In the late 1970's, I-40 bypassed the town.  Now Seligman captures the modern tourist trade with quirky restaurants, the snow-cap drive in, a gift shop with Route 66 Memorabilia, and Lilo's with great pies!  Historic Route 66 -- Yet Another Reason to Buy Land in Northern Arizona!Grand Canyon Caverns

Head northwest on Route 66 and you will come the Grand Canyon Caverns, the largest dry natural limestone cave system in the U.S.  It is accessible by guided tours, interesting for their great size, formations and the store of food and supplies still there the Cuban Missle Crises in 1963.  You can even stay the night in a Cavern Motel Suite, 220 feet under ground!

After visitinOlive Oatman After Living with the Mohave Indiansg the Caverns head west and pass through Kingman (filled with Route 66 history and memorabilia I will save for another blog) and climb the road between the Mount Nutt Wilderness to the north andMain Street Oatman Arizona the Warm Springs Wilderness to the south to Sigreaves Pass and down into the town of Oatman. Oatman is a former mining town which began as a tent camp soon after two prospectors struck gold worth 10 million dollars in 1915.   Named postumously after Olive Oatman, who was alleged to be kidnapped by the Yavapai, then lived with the Mohave until being released near the town in 1855.  Today the town is a treat!  Wild burros descended from ones that came with the early minors roam the streets and on the weekends shootouts happen every hour on main street.

Elise, very nice blog. I'll bet it is great country for hunting and ranching, provided there is available water.

You hit the nail right on the head Norman - Willow Creek has WATER!!!!  Four natural springs on the ranch and water avaialbe at 300 - 550 depth as per the well driller.  There are a few wells as shallow as 150 and there are a couple at almost 700 - but they are rare!  Very comforting as we are nothing without water!

Michael,

Me too - lived ten years in Arizona and then relocated to Sin City (Las Vegas) - coming home to Arizona was the very best thing I could have done for myself and my family!  The feeling of HOME - is something that does your soul good!

Bob, Please do stop by - our area has something that might facinate you... Live Juniper trees are almost impossible to start on fire!!!! Lighting strikes will start one tree on fire, but the fire almost NEVER jumps to another tree.  It is a question asked of me by almost every client coming from CA, and I always preface it withh "I know there is no way you will believe me, but..."  Then I tell them how they can call the fire Dept., and they will drive all the way out here, and they will suit up and get ready and watch the one tree burn, with you!  But so far we have never had a Juniper fire travel!!!  Now the down side is you need to fall your firewood two seasons in advance because until Juniper is dried, really dried, it is a bugger to start a fire with it!

Come on over I'd LOVE to show you around!

Elise, your comments on Juniper bring back a lot of memories, in the mid 80's I worked in the Zuni Mountains of NW New Mexico doing forest inventory work for 2 years.  Most of the time we worked in Ponderosa Pine forests but occasionally we would find ourselves in a little lower elevations where we came across what we referred to as PJ forests for Pinyon Pine and Juniper.

I really enjoyed my years in the SW, lots of interesting things to see, and the people were always so friendly and welcoming.

I've lived here a long time and have never done this as a day trip.  It sounds like fun and I know the route is full of old cars.  Especially the museum in Kingman on the way through.

This is a great blog!  i did this once as a bike trip and oh, the climb up to Sitgreaves Pass was tough.  But the ice cream in Seligman was delicious.
