Standin' On the Corner in Winslow, Arizona

Standin' on the Corner Park, downtown Winslow, Arizona

Winslow, Arizona is a dusty little old town in northern Arizona with a (briefly) glorious past and an uncertain future. 

It was quite the famous little stop along the railroad in its glory days. A luxury hotel stayed in by the movie stars of the day.

No more. Amtrak, the modern passenger train, still stops there, while the other freight trains roar on by. But signs of resurrection occur. Most notably the restoration of La Posada, which is quite the hotel/restaurant. Beautiful.
