The location for this scene is
from along the original Route 66 in Western Arizona, bypassed by a
more modern route many decades before the coming of the
Interstate. There is an indistinct white center line.
It has been dozens of years since the color white has been used to
separate traffic directions, and thus this marking is a fading
artifact. The desert air has likely helped preserve it, so
The distant mountains seem
almost a mirage; and the empty road and the stark surroundings are
shimmering with "something."
