Description 

A website with information on Route 66 (http://www.theroute-66.com/valentine.html) contains this information about Crozier Canyon: Crozier Canyon had a flat grade so railroad tracks originally went through it until the canyon flooded in 1904 and the railroad relocated to higher ground. Even so, in 1913 the National Old Trails was routed through the canyon. At that time, a tourist resort was built in the canyon. When Route 66 was routed in 1926, it followed the alignment of the National Old Trails through the canyon. But in 1937 Crozier Creek flooded again and badly damaged Route 66 and devastated most of the complex. As a result, Route 66 was realigned to the west, along its current roadbed, on higher ground, bypassing the old road with the bridge and tourist resort. Remnants of the resort remain, but it and the bypassed road and bridge are located on private property.
