I love The Eagles. I grew up playing my dad’s old records, listening to Witchy Woman, Desperado, and Hotel California over and over again.
I crossed my fingers in hopes of a girl in a flatbed Ford passing by, but all we came across was the famous corner!
Winslow was a popular stop on the historic Route 66 – keeping it busy with tourists. When Interstate 40 was built, Winslow, like many other Route 66 towns, lost much of their tourist industry.
The Eagles’ song has brought a cult following of tourists to the city. The city has embraced their fame wholeheartedly – even going as far as creating an entire Standing on the Corner Park!
Winslow is also one of the most trafficked railroad stops in the US – the amount of tracks is absurd! It’s estimated that 100 trains run through every day.
Writing, eating, loving, laughing, and enjoying where life takes me.
