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.

It was here that Noela and I decided to head straight into Santa Monica and LA. the option was to head into the hills and go to Bear Lake but there is also alot we wanted to see in the LA area.

... the first section of the Sierra Nevada mountains after crossing over into California, we noticed a vast number of wind turbines on the eastern side and the western side after crossing. If the state of CA. paid for these monsters, you can bet some politicians in the state enjoyed a significant kickback. There had to be at least a thousand of those things on the two sides of the mountains. My understanding is the payback on ...
... that created on the mountains and rocks. Plus, the sun takes quite a long time to truly set in the desert. If you ask me, it was perfect timing. We even added our own rock to the many names that people have assembled alongside the highway over the years. Next time we'll take the time to spell our our names like others have ...
