Back to California we go!

Well, we made it back to California. My daughter wasn't feeling well, so we didn't take too much time sightseeing on the way home from New Mexico. (There's always next time, right?) We did manage to take Route 66 whenever possible between Albuquerque and Bakersfield, and saw some pretty interesting things. I was suprised by the differences we found both in the highway itself and the towns lining it. In some towns, they really embrased the Route 66 funk and kept up with it, some even had tour busses lining the streets. In other towns, not only did it go to ghost town status, but a good deal of the buildings had either fallen down or been burned down. Here are a few pics from the Route 66 portion of our trip this time.
