Nice Route 66 paintings on buildings. A lot of homeless people though

We made a stop in Barstow on our return to Las Vegas, after visiting Joshua Tree National Park during our January 2018 trip. Our intended drive back through Mojave National Preserve was changed due to road conditions after a recent winter storm. However, we really enjoyed the pretty mountainous desert views on the longer route back, particularly on Barstow Road/Rt. 247 between Lucerne Valley and Barstow itself.

Sunrise over the Mojave. Absolute must. The road was completely desolate. I parked and just listened to the silence.

Great to get here early, to get pictures of the sunrise, and of the mountains.

This is my review on the Magnificent Mile in Chicago, IL. I just came back from a amazing trip from Chicago and I walked the Magnificent Mile. I thought that the sites were amazing and I just could not get enough of the sites. I took over 5oo pictures of the sites and I will never forget the scenic route that I decided to take instead of riding public transportation.

First to Review

Well, I am stationed out here in Ft. Irwin, CA. Therefore, I am 31 mi. from Barstow. So, every time I leave post, I drive pass the Mojave Desert and I train out here. Therefore, it does not look like a desert out in Iraq some where and there are a lot of mountains. Plus, I think I have out done my camera with all the photos I have taken.
