Desert Speaks

Kickin' West On Route 66

Season 16, Episode 5 of 13

Join host David Yetman and his travel companion, ecologist Yar Petryszyn, as they travel along the historic Route 66 through some of the finest deserts in the United States. Beginning near the border of Texas and New Mexico, they cruise by convertible along the road that allowed thousands of Americans to make the journey to California. The Desert Speaks also takes the time to stop at some of the memorable locales along the way. They tour a museum that houses some of the restored cars that made the momentous track cross country, take note of some petroglyphs in Albuquerque, gaze at the neon lights that line the historic road and stop in the "Painted" Desert for a picturesque sunset.
