Seligman AZ

The second day of our road trip took us across the Mojave desert, into Arizona, and ended in Seligman AZ. This little town was right out of the movie "Cars".


In fact, the rumor is that the town barber "Mario" was the model for the character "Luigi" in the movie.


Of course, I didn't research this very thoroughly, and the town was pretty much shut down by the time we started to explore. We had a decent but very overpriced dinner at "The Roadkill Cafe", then headed back to our campground.


The (expensive) KOA was pretty much the only available camping in town, but what I did not really notice until bedtime was that the campground was very close to the train tracks. And the route is very active ALL NIGHT! This was not the first time we'd run across this problem, but it WAS the first time we found such a poor location with KOA. The next day, earplugs were #1 on my list of needed items.

So...Seligman was a cute stop, but not on my list of adventures to repeat.

  2. What a cute town. We drove right by here on the highway 2 days after you did and didn't even know it was there. We did stop in Winslow though...did you? Can't wait to hear more about the trip.
