Enjoying roadside attractions while traveling Route 66 is a time-honored tradition.

While not a typical destination, this weathered barn along the route east of Amarillo— now Farm-to-Market Road 2161—takes on a warm glow with photographer Clark Crenshaw’s addition of LED lighting. From Conway, head about 5 miles west along FM 2161 to find the deserted outbuilding along the south side right before the road curves toward Interstate 40. Visit nps.gov for more information.
