1926 - 1970s Route 66 AlignmentsWest Tucumcari Blvd. Tucumcari, NM
The turn off to the old road is here:
On your way to the turn around, go straight ahead where another paved road turns south. On your way back from the the end of the road you get a great look at Tucumcari Mountain as well as the buildings hiding wells as seen in the photo above.
There are actually two alignments here, this abutment is from the Bluewater Creek bridge on the older alignment that was abandoned in 1950. In the upper right corner of this photo you can see a bit of a railroad bridge that is just a few feet north of the abutment.
GPS: 35.150682, -103.787947
Just east of the bridge ruins you can spot this natural rock wall and if you look carefully there is a ghost sign advertising a gas station painted on it, the lighter section towards the left of this photo.
