Route 66 Midpoint Cafe sign, Adrian, Texas
Midpoint Café Sign
The classic sign of the Midpoint Café in Adrian Texas, so-named because of it’s location exactly midway between Chicago and Los Angeles; 1139 miles either way!
Route 66 Midpoint Cafe interior Adrian, Texas
Inside the Midpoint Café in Adrian Texas. The diner was closed at the time, but as I was shooting the sign outside the owner pulled up and invited me in to have a look around. I was supremely disappointed they were closed; this just looks like a place where you know you’ll get great food and service!

Rooute 66 original road surface near Endeen, New Mexico
Route 66 near Endee, NM
As the sun set on another day, I pulled over along the old road between Glenrio and San Jon to photograph this section of original road surface, near Endee, New Mexico. Much of the going on this 18 mile stretch of the old road is now simply a dirt road, but there are still a couple sections like this one left to enjoy.
