A scenic view of Oatman from Snob Hill.

The road really starts winding around the mountains past that point as it goes through an area called Sitgreaves pass, where you can see abandoned mines and goldmine shafts right from the road.

...as well as scenic "aerial style" vistas coming around on the other side -- a good thing considering the speed limit along this stretch is only 15mph.

Knowing how long the older roads took to drive, I chose I-40 over the "scenic" route when I got to Kingman. My final stop for the night was the Grand Canyon!
