In December, New Mexico Magazine sent out photographer Jeremy Wade Shockley to span the state from Glenrio to Gallup for the feature "25 Reasons to Love Route 66." The article by Amanda Kooser and featuing additional photography from Julien McRoberts will publish as part of the magazine's March issue in mid-February. But as a special preview for our readers, we offer this gallery of images the Shockley made with a smartphone and posted on photo-sharing site Instagram.
