The sunrise was beautiful and it was cold as we headed out this morning. Our first stop was artsy Cadillac Ranch which some guy in the 70s paid some artists to do something creative with some cadillacs. So they buried the front ends and painted them. We found it fairly easily and decided to walk the dogs out to it---BIG MISTAKE. The dogs' paws and …

... to wave to it to earn another great blast of the horn. A little further on John saw a sign pointing to a Post Office off the road to the left and so we drove there to leave postcard number 3 for his Mum in the care of the US Postal System. What we found was that we had arrived in the almost forgotten one square town of San Jose. There were no restaurants to be seen or anything like a convenience store or gas station - just a Post Office where the mail was collected at 4pm every weekday. ...

We saw a person about to pull out of a spot, so we waited as they took their sweet time.

Yvette stuck her head out of the window and waved at them to get ...

    Larger room than most Motel 6 rooms we've seen before. Very clean. Very kind lady at front desk. Free wifi.

This one has the indoor access as opposed to outside doors so feels a bit safer though in a mildly sketchy location.
