Last Leg of Route 66
The picture to the left depicts the entrace to the courtyard at La Posada. It has several gardens and iron artwork.
To the right is a few exhibits depicting the hotel in its early history. If you're interested, click on this link and read up about it's early construction, the Harvey girls, and its restoration.
The neat things and places we saw are too many to list, though I'll soon blog about Oatman, Clark Gable, and Carole Lombard as well as the small mining town of Calico, California.
Back in the car, we drove up Highway 101, connected with scenic Highway 1 to San Simeon. I'll blog about the sights there on another day.
Thank you for stopping by and driving the old mother road with me. Happy Reading and Writing!
