Long Description:
From the American Byways web page for Oatman:

Gold mines, gun fights, saloons, rickety wooden walkways, and even old prospector’s mules that own the road make the entire town of Oatman a roadside attraction! It’s not typically what comes to mind when you think of Route 66, but this wild-west ghost town is just the western experience European travelers are looking for, and this little town delivers an authentic, all-American experience that you find at the end of the Oatman-Route 66 National Back Country Byway.
