Road trip to Laughlin, NV stopping at Ludlow, California

Posted by PicasaWe decided to get off the I-40 and take the historical Route 66 and visit some of the old towns on the highway while collecting rocks!

This badly faded, road town has moved two times.
The first site was along the Southern Pacific Railroad tracks. When Route (US Highway) 66 came through, the town moved a short distance north to the highway. When Interstate 40 was built in the early 1970s, the town again marched north to lock into the Interstate trade. Ludlow is on I-40, about 50 miles east of Barstow.

If you look closely at the picture in the upper left corner you will see two old ravens sitting in what remains of the widows. They flew away when we walked up to the old buildings.
