Actor William Shatner is currently on a cross-country trek, riding on a three-wheeled motorcycle he created in collaboration with American Wrench. The eight day tour took him along the old Route 66 highway from Chicago to Los Angeles. What a great way to test out the bike and see the country! The tour also serves as a way to help raise awareness for the American Legion and their scholarship that supports children of servicemen and servicewomen who have died on active duty since 9/11.

Patrick Murphy from Indianz.com covered part of Shatner's journey through Navajo Nation where he did a photoshoot and met up with members of the Navajo Hopi Honor Riders.

“We were invited to share some of our story and culture with William Shatner,” the group said on Facebook. “Offered a prayer of safe journey for their group, a couple gifts and a story of who we are as Diné (Navajo). Hopefully this is all has a positive impact and gives insight to how we honor and remember our Warriors.”

I can't wait to see pictures from the photoshoot on Navajo Nation. We all know how beautiful that area is!
