My dame has lost her shoe..."
Deborah loses her shoe in this picture at one of the first rest stops we stopped at.
This gas station had vintage gas pumps!
Waiting for the others...
Holbrook, Arizona--where we stopped the first night. These quaint lamposts charmed us!
The Mojave has its loveliness!
At this motel we met a large group of Norwegians who were traveling the whole of Route 66 on motorcycle!

What exactly are Joshua trees made of?
This is "The Infamous Family Portrait". A Lady came up to Elisha while we were looking at the Joshua Tree, and wanted to take a family picture for us--Elisha did tell her that we weren't all here but she took it anyway! The lady didn't want a picture of us, she wanted us to have a picture of ourselves--which Mom or Nathaniel could have taken, because they weren't in the picture!
When we saw this we wondered for a few moments but then remembered---when we lived in So-Cal I remember seeing empty shopping carts occasionally in ditches etc. and Mom telling us that those were carts people had taken home with them. Well, this guy in the above truck thought entreprenurially and made a business out of the problem of the stolen shopping carts! We assume he goes around collecting carts, and as we saw him, returning them to their stores for a fee!
