Twin Arrows Arizona – Route 66
After Two Guns, the next place to visit was Twin Arrows.
I remember stopping here in the 80’s when I first got the route 66 bug with my wife. We got gas, had a burger and headed into flagstaff. The last few years I’ve watched it close, get vandalized and start to fall apart. I pulled up expecting to get some pictures and reminisce about a fallen route 66 landmark. I didn’t realize how far it’s fallen.
I jumped the barrier and took a few pictures, and got a few inside. It’s amazing how the walls still shine with fresh coats of paint, but the roof is failing and the windows are broken. Sad. When I got home, I searched and found that there is Hope for Twin Arrows and it may be Restored, At least it’s being looked at. I hope they do it. I’ve noticed that even with the last few years the arrows themselves are starting to rot and fall apart.
