International Center of Art & Crafts & Culture

Gallup is known around the world for authentic Indian art & jewelry trading & sales. More than 100 shops to visit, they claim. I visited about four & definitely got some beautiful jewelry at great prices! It was worth the stop just for that, but there's so much more here. There's history, natural beauty of the desert & red rock. And, of course, the people! I want to go back soon & again.

Route 66 is the Real America

There have been many books written on Route 66, with good reason. It is one of the most signifigant parts of USA cultural history. Starting in Chicago,ending in California, it was the first road connecting the Midnwest with the West. Parts of the road still exist but it is getting harder & harder to find it. Gallup is one of the easy ones, so is Flagstaff, Arizona. And I love both places!
