Our intrepid travel writer, Leslie Cruse, has moved on from her gig as a hotel bigwig in Dubai to settle back in the U.S.  In the meantime, she has been spotted zipping along Route 66 heading west.  Being a hospitality exec she was attracted to the motels in the area.  The following are images she snapped while overnighting in Tucumcari, New Mexico.

As the railroads moved west, Ragtown sprung up as a north eastern New Mexico staging area for rail workers in the early 1900s.  Name was changed to Tucumcari in 1908 when it became a city.  Tucumcari mountain can be seen in the distance.  Tucumcari is taken from the Comanche language meaning “ambush.”
