Is there anything more American than Route 66? On one road alone, you get to experience the diversity
of the U.S. landscape. From prairies to mountains, deserts to plains, Rt. 66 has a way of introducing you
to the majesty of America and seeing the world through a new perspective.
Natural wonders abound on the Main Street of America and its easy to see why this stretch of road has a perennial spot on most people’s bucket list. Take, for example, the Petrified Forest national park, encompassing the natural phenomenon’s namesake and the Painted Desert. With bands of color that formed through years of erosion of the desert mountains, geological marvel is an out-of-this-world experience that must be seen to be believed. Coupled with the equally mesmerizing stonelike formations of ancient trees and fossilized. Large stretches of mountain look as though a watercolor brush was stroked across the sides, creating a visually stunning effect unlike anywhere else in the U.S.
What better place, then, to start our journey through Route 66 for the first in a new series of pens from Esterbrook?
Petrified Forest is the latest Estie, celebrating the beauty of taking it easy on Route 66, bypassing the shortcuts for the long way around the country, and enjoying the natural splendor along the way.
