US 60 West - Grand Ave, the Phoenix-Wickenburg Hwy - Phoenix to Wickenburg

Before I was able to continue my kicks on Route 66, I first had a to travel the highway that almost gave it's number to the Mother Road: US 60.
US 60 was originally supposed to run from Chicago, IL to Los Angeles, CA. This route was later disputed, as others had been working on a true trans-continental highway that they felt was more deserving of a '0' designation. AASHTO agreed, gave the original US 60 a new number of US 66, and gave the US 60 designation to the new, more southern route.
Originally running from Newport News, VA to Springfield, MO, the road pushed east and west. In 1930, the east end was pushed 40 miles east to Virginia Beach, VA and the west end to Amarillo, TX acting as a supplemental US 66 is many places. From there, US 60 replaced US 366 from Amarillo to Clovis, NM, and replaced US 70 from there to Springerville, AZ (US 70 was later moved to a more southern route with it's old western leg to Holbrook transferred to US 260, and ultimately US 180).
Finally, in 1932, US 60 reached it target of Los Angeles, and of course had to run through Phoenix to get there. It entered the valley on the Apache Trail, now co-routed with US 70, 80 and 89, through Apace Junction (now the Old West Hwy), which becomes Main St after entering Mesa, and later reverts to Apache Blvd as it enters Tempe. From there the highway curved north onto historic Mill Ave in downtown Tempe, crossed the historic Mill Ave bridges, and turns into Van Buren St as the road curved west. (I believe Washington St was Alternative 60/70/80/89).
From here, US 60, 70 and 89 moved to the diagonal-running Grand Ave (the only misplaced road in the grid system) where AZ-69 began at Van Buren. US 80 continued solo down Van Buren St, where it turned south on 17th Ave, and finally west on Buckeye Rd on it's way out of town.
SR 69 left Grand Ave to follow the Black Canyon Hwy. This was completely replaced in the valley by the Black Canyon Freeway, now I-17. US 89 departed in Wickenburg along what is now US 93. US 60 and 70 continued together into California at Blythe. Interstate 10 replaced US 60 and 70 from Brenda Junction to Beaumont, CA. As such, all three were co-routed along the new Interstate. In 1964, after California's Great Renumbering, US 60 and 70 were truncated to the Arizona border. AASHTO approved the 1966 truncations of US 60 to Brenda Junction and US 70 to Globe, so US 70 no longer enters the valley.
To this day, US 60 enters the Valley of the Sun on it's original alignment. Quickly thereafter, however, the Superstition Freeway picks up US 60 and moves traffic through Apache Junction and Mesa to the Tempe/Phoenix line. There, the Superstition ends and merges with the Maricopa Freeway, at this point I-10. From there it follows the Maricopa Freeway to the southern I-17 junction, where I-10 leaves to follow the Inner Loop Freeway and I-17 begins on the Maricopa.
At a 90 degree elbow in the freeway, nicknamed the Durango Curve, both I-17 and US 60 become the Black Canyon Freeway. US 60 leaves the freeway at Thomas Rd. There, US 60 makes a confusing series of quick lefts and rights to reach the historic Grand Ave. From there, US 60 leaves the valley heading west, also along it's historic alignment.

Arizona (/ˌærɪˈzoʊnə/ (About this sound listen); Navajo: Hoozdo Hahoodzo [xòːztò xɑ̀xòːtsò]; O'odham: Alĭ ṣonak [ˡaɺi ˡʂonak]) is a U.S. state in the southwestern region of the United States. It is also part of the Western and the Mountain states. It is the sixth largest and the 14th most populous of the 50 states. Its capital and largest city is Phoenix. Arizona is one of the Four Corners states. Arizona is bordered by New Mexico to the east, Utah to the north, Nevada and California to the west, and Mexico to the south, as well as the southwestern corner of Colorado. Arizona's border with Mexico is 389 miles (626 km) long, on the northern border of the Mexican states of Sonora and Baja California.
Arizona is the 48th state and last of the contiguous states to be admitted to the Union, achieving statehood on February 14, 1912, coinciding with Valentine's Day. Historically part of the territory of Alta California in New Spain, it became part of independent Mexico in 1821. After being defeated in the Mexican–American War, Mexico ceded much of this territory to the United States in 1848. The southernmost portion of the state was acquired in 1853 through the Gadsden Purchase.
Southern Arizona is known for its desert climate, with very hot summers and mild winters. Northern Arizona features forests of pine, Douglas fir, and spruce trees; the Colorado Plateau; some mountain ranges (such as the San Francisco Mountains); as well as large, deep canyons, with much more moderate summer temperatures and significant winter snowfalls. There are ski resorts in the areas of Flagstaff, Alpine, and Tucson. In addition to the Grand Canyon National Park, there are several national forests, national parks, and national monuments.
About one-quarter of the state is made up of Indian reservations that serve as the home of 27 federally recognized Native American tribes, including the Navajo Nation, the largest in the state and the United States, with more than 300,000 citizens. Although federal law gave all Native Americans the right to vote in 1924, Arizona excluded those living on reservations from voting until its state Supreme Court ruled in 1948 in favor of Native American plaintiffs.
CA 110 South, Historic US 66 West - Arroyo Seco Pkwy, Harbor Fwy - Pasadena to Downtown Los Angeles
So after messing around with YouTube settings and trying to figure out why my video was not looking good, I was finally able to get it looking better than it was and finally decided it was time to release it publicly.
Today we traverse a road we have already taken, but with fresh, new footage, editing and direction. CA 110 South may not be quite as interesting as CA 110 North which runs through the historic Figueroa Tunnels, but it is interesting in it's own right. The completed parkway opened on December 30th, 1940. Complete with then-modern touches we now take for granted - including controlled access via entrance and exits ramps, a lanes-width emergency shoulder, dual carriage ways and a whopping speed limit of 45 MPH - the Parkway was the first controlled-access highway in the western United States, cut the commute time from Pasadena to Los Angeles in half and helped cement the modern car culture that dominates Los Angeles and most of the southwest today.
Those modern touches are now either removed or are now woefully outdated; Ramps are so short that some are required to stop at the base of the ramp and floor it to merge into the 55 MPH+ traffic, the emergency lane was re-striped to expand the traffic capacity of the roadway in the 1950s, and the lanes are so narrow some drivers may feel claustrophobic in some larger vehicles while feeling compelled to do 5 MPH over the speed limit around tight curves. Most don't realize that the road was designed and built in a time when being able to do a mile a minute - 60 MPH - was considered ground breaking.
Before 1953, the expressway ended at and merged onto modern Figueroa St to make it's final trip in Downtown. Planning in the mid-late 1940s and building in the late 1940s to early 1950s would extend the Arroyo Seco Parkway (then US 6, 66, 99 and SSR 11) west-southwest to the proposed Four-Level Interchange directly north of Downtown to meet the new Hollywood (then US 66, 101 now US 101), Santa Ana (then US 99, 101, now US 101) and Harbor (then US 6 and SSR 11, now SR 110) Freeways. The extension opened in 1953 and a year later the Arroyo Seco Parkway was renamed to the Pasadena Freeway. This was done to bring the transitional parkway-freeway hybrid's name into the modern naming convention of naming the freeways after cities or landmarks they begin or end at.
In early 2011, to commemorate the 70th birthday of the Pasadena Freeway, California restored it's name to the Arroyo Seco Parkway and began changing all 'Freeway Entrance' signs to 'Parkway Entrance' signs. This was done for a few reasons, including it's inclusion that year to the National Register of Historic Places (and probably also in hopes that tourists will understand that it is not a full freeway). In addition it became Southern California's first National Scenic Byway in 2002.

A Visit to Slide Rock Park Near Sedona, Arizona
Watch HD clips from Slide Rock Park, named after the famous Slide Rock, a stretch of slippery creek bottom including a natural water chute. Filmed on a balmy Arizona day in April 2013, this video shows the chute as well as deeper pool areas where swimmers can jump off short cliffs into the water. The water temperature the day this was filmed was a chilly 52F, but that didn't stop most vacationers have jumping in and having fun.
