Goodbye Laurel Kane
Laurel Kane, Route 66 personality, informal tourism ambassador and curator of Afton Station in Afton, Oklahoma, died January 28 from the consequences of a fall. She was a fan of this blog and had her own quite amusing one. She paid me the complement of asking advice on photography questions a couple times.
Laurel ran Afton Station, an old DX station, as a visitor center and museum which displayed a number of artifacts from Buffalo Ranch, a bygone attraction of Route 66 and a favorite of my brother's and mine when we were kids.
In addition, her ex-husband has a Packard museum at Afton Station. Plans are for Afton Station to stay open.
