Route 66

We went on a trip from San Bernardino to Barstow on Route 66. I must say there are a lot of quirky things along the route.

One of them was Elmer's Bottle Farm. I thought we'd walk through it in about 5 minutes. Nope - it took us about 1/2 hour to see it all.

I loved the sewing machines on top of the bottle trees

We stayed in a place called Newberry Springs.

If you ever have a reason to stay in Barstow, CA, this is the most charming place to stay.  It's a caboose on a lake. Imagine, a lake in the middle of the desert. The owner has turned her land truly into an oasis. Here's a couple of photos:

This is the back of the caboose

Here's the side
Here's the best part, the view out of the front window:

Amazing lake in the middle of the desert.

 The inside has been completely modernized. We plan on returning sometime and just spending a couple of days relaxing.
