One of the highlights of the trip down RT66 was to see some of the restored gas stations in Shamrock, Texas. We were fortunate to have a storm roll in and give me some good evening clouds. The trip to the Magnolia gas station was inspired by a photo photographer Ben Wilmore created. Here is what I was able to capture of these fine restored gas stations. Turns out you normally need reservations in this small town due to the oil and gas boom, but since it was a holiday weekend we were able to get a place for the night.
We love this type of food and place. Pappy was there to greet us and make everyone feel at home. There was a long line of locals waiting to get in. I caused a bit of a traffic jam trying to get the truck out of the parking lot, but did so without a scratch…. Next stop, the St. Louis Arch.
