Route 66

We managed to squeeze in just a little bit of this nostalgic past between Barstow and Victorville.
DSC_3349Joe loves the run down and closed up shops. The train tracks running parallel with the road.DSC_3352I wanted to see the Bottle Tree Ranch.DSC02501The very first sign we saw getting out of the car was an invitation of sorts.DSC02523Easy enough to find on the side of the road.DSC02521This is such a lovely and fun yard of art.DSC02513The shadows were long and wintery.DSC02520The kids were thrilled to touch and pull and poke at the art.DSC02506A magical playground.DSC02509Olivine took a long time deciding which rock she wanted to adoptDSC_3307and I kept thinking about how the shadows resembled the designer Orla Kiely’s flowers.DSC_3317This place is worth the detourDSC02510and my family gave it five stars.DSC02522I could have stayed much longer and will definitely find an excuse to wander back here at some point in the future.
