Continental Divide Marker
(Gallup, New Mexico)
Noted by many as the highest point on Route 66 (which is incorrect, I've found many articles stating Brannigan Park in Arizona takes that honor at 7,300 feet above sea level) it is a significant marker along the route. At this location, the continent is divided and all water to the west flows to the Pacific Ocean and water to the east flows to the Atlantic.
This has nothing to do with the historic route but was worth noting for any of you nomadic travelers. I haven't eaten at a Denny's in a few years but found they have a super cheap "$2 $4 $6 $8 Value Menu®" where I got a biscuit and gravy with hashbrowns for $2! I put the fork on the plate so you can see it's plenty of food.
