December 8, 2011Kathy and I are heading out for Vegas this morning. Driving the Old Trails, thru Wickenburg, Santa Maria, Wickieup, Kingman, Santa Claus, Grasshopper Junction and White Hills. Always brings back memories. When we first moved to Kingman for good in 1956, the road to Wikieup was dirt, because the Prescott business lobby didn't want the road paved, because they wanted Mohave County traffic to come through their town (we had to drive to Ashfork on 66, then down to Prescott and from there to Phoenix). it wasn't until we got a highway commissioner from Kingman (Leo Black?), that the road was finally paved, with good intentions.
