I highly recommend this motel; at $49.50 + tax for three of us the 1920's stucco-style cabin was simple and comfortable and included a breakfast nook and a well-appointed separate bathroom. Then of course, there's the old cars and memorabilia to peruse out in the courtyard.....great photo ops! If you aren't too attached to all the trimmings and associated costs, this is the hotel for you.

Thank goodness for a new car with efficient a/c
But the hotel more than made up for that ghastly drive.
Today we just drove ...
... and a water tanker from the mountains through Death Valley. The one way trip took about 10 days, often in temperatures as high as 130 degrees in the summer. The drivers called them all by name and they were all very smart. For example, as the team pulled the wagons around a curve, the chains connecting them would tend to pull into a straight line, which wouldn't allow the team to navigate the ...
... and the temperatures had dropped remarkedly lower than when we rode through the desert 9 weeks ago.
The ride was great and we decided to stop and have breakfast at the Juicy River cafe. However, that's when the fun stopped.
