Decorating Creosote Bushes At Christmas   5 comments

Christmas 2012

Driving old Route 66 in the foothills of the Black Mountains near Oatman, Arizona, we noticed one of the ever-present Creosote bushes along the edge of the highway was decorated. Figuring this had to be a photo opt, I stopped to capture the moment.

Continuing our drive to Oatman, we saw another decorated Creosote bush: then another and another. I have since learn that this is a Christmas tradition — children decorating the bushes along Route 66 outside of Oatman.

Oatman, Arizona is a ghost town in the Black Mountains east of Bull Head, Arizona on the old Route 66 highway. The old mining town is known for its wild burros that roam the streets, descended from pack animals turned loose by early prospectors, and are protected by the US Department of the Interior.  Joy’s sister Jeri and her husband Ron visited the town during our stay at the nearby gaming town of Laughlin, Nevada.

Chick here to see a slideshow of Oatman in my Flickr account.
