Lost America Photos: Highway to Hell

Lost America has a neat collection of "night photography of the abandoned West." This one above is the original Highway to Hell, route 666 in Utah:

Sunset on U.S. Route 666 in southern Arizona. Redesignated as U.S. Route 491 in 2003 from pressure by Christian groups and an AZ highway department tired of replacing stolen signs.

US Hwy 666 started in Utah and ended in Arizona going through Colorado and New Mexico (the Four Corners)and the Navajo Nation. The stretch of road from Cortez, CO to Gallup, NM is a long 2-lane narrow road on which many people lost their lives due to accidents and alcohol. In 2003, after some improvements were made to the road, the number was changed.

I've ridden 666 in Arizona by motorcycle a couple of times. It's actually a beautiful road with a buttload of hairpin turns and great scenery. Light traffic, too.
