Miss Route 66 travels her namesake

Kara Knudsen, 18, of Norco, Calif., was crowned Miss Route 66 for 2006-07 at a pageant in Barstow a while back.

To her credit, she’s been traveling the road that provides her title, according to the Winslow (Ariz.) Mail:

She and her grandfather, Robert Knudsen, 75, have been travelling their favorite road eastbound for some time; visiting the historic sites, meeting people and collecting souvenir pins along this stretch. They stopped in Winslow last week to stay for a few days while traveling around to see local sights and visits friends in the area while staying around to participate in the Winslow Christmas Parade.
