Rte. 66, Pacific Coast Hwy 101, California Rte. 1,
Blue Ridge Pkwy., Green River Pkwy
These are historic roads along beautiful sights. We have traveled along 101 and 1 here in California. They curve along the Pacific Coast. Indescribable.
We drove on 66 briefly, since it is now in short stretches and bits. Ate at Road Kill Cafe, Rte. 66, Seligman, AZ. Great French fries.
Blue Ridge and Green River Pkwys are beautiful beyond description, as the YouTube videos show. God is amazing.
So, what is this post all about? What Hwy didn't make the cut?
Hwy 61, of course. By Bob Dylan.
How to describe this song is way beyond me. There are five stanzas. Each one describes some sort of problem resolved on Hwy 61. Or, maybe it isn't about anything, because Dylan's style is a swirl of images and rhythms? Or, maybe Dylan was just playing with words, all pouring out from his crazy great brain?
Hwy 61 travels from Minnesota (or beyond into Canada) in a winding way to New Orleans. The heart of blues strolled along the Mississippi South to North, stopping off to share the music's beauty and rhythm.
So, here is Bob Dylan:
