Sitgreaves Pass On Old US-66




US-66 didn't go through Laughlin as it wasn't even there when the highway was built. Neither was Bullhead City or the dam or nothing. This was all just open land, except for Oatman. The second pic shows Sandra overlooking the road heading east, on the way to Kingman. The third pic is all that's left of a gas station that used to be at the top of the pass back 80 or 90 years ago.
You can see in the bottom pic how curvy the road was back in the day, compared to the Interstate now.
