Rubbish Tuesday

Finally a home for all those photos I take of old items!!

Continuing with our travels along Route 66 featuring iconic motel signs and other landmarks.

November and December 2012 saw us taking our first winter sojourn away from cold and snowy Toronto. We drove across from Toronto to (eventually) Los Angeles and back in the spring of 2013. We made many stops along the towns of Route 66 on interstate 40.

Winter 2013 and spring 2014 saw us do the same trip but we took interstate 10, further south from Route 66.

A trip to Chicago gave us another Route 66 photo op.

In earlier years we had taken many vacations in California which also led to some Route 66 icons.

I am enjoying doing these posts as I research the hotels and motels along the way and learn many new things.
Wikipedia is usually my source.

November 2008 - Barstow CA

I had posted a couple of photos last year from a bottle farm on Route 66 near Barstow CA.
This brings recycling to a new level!


  1. How much fun is THAT! :-) Someone has a lot of imagination and creativity!

  2. OH......MY.......WORD.....some of these are so cool but yet....what for??????

  3. They must have been collecting bottles for years!! I wonder if the wind makes noises with the bottles when it blows through...

  4. Very strange, but a fun place to visit. I've never seen so many discarded bottles. Great photos!
    I'm so sorry for not getting around sooner. It's been a sad week with a death in our family. Not much time for blogging.
