Visited the recently refurbished Painted Desert Trading Post on #Route66 in Chambers, AZ.

Impressive work done. Looks fantastic.

I realize this isn’t one of my best posts/photos I’ve taken, but the pop of yellow floral against the beautiful blue sky really caught my eye!

Also, the sign in the photo says WINDSOR, as in Dotch Windsor, the 1st owner of the Painted Desert Trading Post. Windsor also had a ranch, and sign was made in honor of his ranch. This scene is on old Route 66 just west of the Painted Desert Trading Post and the sign was designed by the beautiful and very talented Shellee Graham.

Saving the Painted Desert Trading Post is officially completed; the exterior was restored to look just like it did in an old photo.

😍😍 To know this gem was literally about to fall to the ground a couple years ago and to see what it looks like now is an indescribable feeling of joy🥰. Richard has been to every work session and I only made it to 3 or 4, but ALL the owners and several volunteers worked their butts off to save this historical building every single work session!! No, it will never be an operational business. But we do love having visitors! Besides all the hard work put into this place, the owners were very thankful for all the donations, successful fundraisers, etc.; supplies such as lumber, stucco, and much more really added up💰 We all will return and do upkeep, and are even thinking about holding an event there next year, inviting visitors to come out and enjoy this amazing place! 🎉 BTW, the Trading Post is located on an old abandoned section of Route 66 that went thru the Painted Desert in Arizona.

From the archives: a survivor. Imagine all the traffic on I-40 whizzing by this place instead.

One mile and 60 years from I-40, between the Petrified Forest and the Navajo Travel Center. You can see it from the highway if you know where to look. A few years back a cooperative purchased the building and land, if not for them it would have probably collapsed by now. If you’re interested in helping them out, @mo66assc President @roaminrich is a good bet on this platform. They do t-shirt sales and other fundraisers on a semi regular basis.

The ARIZONA RANCHO has been closed for some time but began it’s life as an adobe family home in the 1800’s and eventually became an inn I believe in the late 40s or early 50’s.



I never got to stay there, what a pity for I am a big fan of adobe and this was it!

@ the Painted Desert Trading Post. We’ve been here 3 years ago. The restoration process is amazing.

It has improved a lot since we saw it last. #painteddeserttradingpost #painteddesert #

Happy to see Route 66 friends Richard & Judy Walker and Movin’ Mark Norman, as they make their way back out to the Painted Desert Trading Post project.

Follow their progress at @Route66PaintedDesertTradingPost ! #motelsafari #motelsafari66 #route66 #tucumcaritonite #painteddeserttradingpost

One of the greatest preserved relics of the mother road.

We were actually there the very night before they started their preservation work, so this is the last shot of it in it's feral form.

Our most favorite Route 66 spot, the Painted Desert Trading Post, because it’s – quite literally – off the beaten path.

Thanks to some 66 friends and trusty Professor Bill, we were able to get inside the locked cattle gate and drive our van to this mystical white whale (rather than hike like last time!) While taking lots of daytime shots and shooting some video, we accidentally stayed till dusk. Which means …while we weren’t planning to light paint her a second time … we sure did. She’s just such a temptress! Our first light painting at sunset, with the gorgeous Painted Desert as a backdrop, and yellow from our Protomachines flashlight. The full moon wasn’t up just yet, so we used white light to give the front a pop.

I decided I really wanted to post this photo today, due to the elections in the US.

I HAD to put some extra highlight on the American flag. God bless the USA🙏🏻🇺🇸🙏🏻

These photos are of the Painted Desert Trading Post. They were taken after we completed the last work week. We were pretty excited to post the Arizona Route 66 signs on old Route 66 near the Trading Post. And did I mention that flag? 😉🇺🇸

*Located on old Route 66 east of the Painted Desert in Chambers, Arizona.

We took this photo last month during our last work week at the Painted Desert Trading Post near Holbrook, Arizona, on Route 66.



During our last work week, we focused on repairing some of the damaged and/or missing stucco. (I salute anyone reading this who does stucco work for a living!! Hard work and it’s a real learning curve, one I haven’t conquered yet lol) Anyway, the blue tape on the wording was for stucco, but it was quickly determined more tape was needed.

We are slowly getting the Trading Post about as finished as we want it. Jerry McClanahan assisted us this past work week and he documented the lettering and even found some original lettering that the rest of us hadn’t even seen... We can’t wait to show you all the finished product someday!🎉🎉

Well what is wrong with me? I forgot to show you this...

THIS is the reason we went to Arizona in September. The Painted Desert Trading Post, located on an old section of Route 66 on private property. Back in the day, people drove by or stopped here for gas, trinkets, and treasures before driving thru the beautiful Painted Desert. A couple years ago, we chipped in with some other like minded Route 66 preservationists and bought this property. The trading post was about to fall down. Not any longer❣️ It will be sturdy for many years to come! We (The PDTP Co-Op) have taken 7 or more work days multiple times since purchasing it and worked on it. We’ve had some great volunteers helping too!! We are allowing folks on the property to view this gem in the desert near Holbrook, Arizona. (About 30 miles away) *The jackrabbit sign indicates the Jackrabbit Trading Post it 50 miles away. Be sure to stop there!! GREAT people and a great place! **The Painted Desert Trading Post will not be reopened as a business, it was rescued for preservation only. #rjsroute66 #route66 #motherroad #signgeeks #signs #painteddeserttradingpost #desert #everything_signage #trb_ipoft_signs #everything_imaginable #uspixels #usa_photolovers #icu_usa #just_unitedstates #wow_america #renegade_rural #backroad_visions #ipulledoverforthis #1usashot #got__greatshots #royalsnappingartists #mustsee

More kicks on Route 66! I hope we can finish the Route one day!

Virtual Painted Desert Trading Post tour!

We had no plan to go out to PDTP today, but it was kismet we landed in Holbrook yesterday and @trapperschoepp 's Petty cover of "Walls" - which features this desert gem in the cover - came out yesterday.
Thanks @roaminrich @nickgerlich and Professor Bill for helping us with the gate. We accidentally stayed till dark. Which means, while we weren't planning to light paint a second time ... We did. She's just such a temptress 😂 Next slide please!

We were standing just a few feet behind the Painted Desert Trading Post in Arizona when we took this photo.

The sky was so beautiful!! It was almost as if we could reach up and touch the clouds above our heads. This was an interesting scene with what appeared to be a slight rotation of the clouds❣️ #rjsroute66 #route66 #arizona #painteddeserttradingpost #desert #beauty #sky #everything_imaginable #pocket_usa #renegade_rural #uspixels #icu_usa #bns_usa #usa_photolovers #just_unitedstates #wow_america #backroad_visions #route66travelers #ipulledoverforthis #hey_ihadtosnapthat #painteddesert #clouds #motherroad
