Parting Shot

Six-Shooter Siding

Following nothing but a road map and buzzards flying above to the near seemingly desolate town of Tucumcari: the town almost forgotten in time. These curiosity shoppes parked alongside the iconic Route 66 used to be flourishing with families on their travels through the great southwest. For a quick moment, you may step back to what life was like starting back at the peak of this great attraction, Legendary Roadside America. A town nicknamed “Six-Shooter Siding” for the plethora of gunfights presents a history of Comanches, outlaws, slippery train robbers and air that breathes mystery of the ancient Wild West.
