High Desert Route 66 Day Trip in Southern California

Plan a Fun Southern California Route 66 Day Trip

High Desert Bloggers recently enjoyed a High Desert Route 66 day trip and began at Molly Brown’s for breakfast. It’s the perfect place to start a fun Route 66 day.

Portions are huge, and the food is absolutely delicious – even special orders like an egg-less, cheese-less vegetable omelet.

Bottle Tree Ranch

Turn left from Molly Brown’s and go about a mile to The Bottle Tree Ranch on the right. The bloggers wandered around taking pictures and met up with Folk Artist Elmer Long who created this amazing place. He doesn’t claim to be an artist, however, but has collected bottles of all types and colors that he enjoys displaying. The collection began when as a young boy he would go gallivanting with his father to places where they could find old bottles. It’s a place worth visiting, and it’s FREE!

Antique Shopping on High Desert Route 66

Like vintage shopping? Continue east on National Trails Highway about six miles to Oro Grande where there are several antique shops.

Save time for the next stop, Antique Station. A quick walk-through might take you thirty minutes, but do yourself a favor and plan at least an hour to see everything. In fact, one could easily spend two or three hours while shopping at this place.

The High Desert Route 66 day trip was a break-away from The High Desert Bloggers’ typical computer outing. Getting out to enjoy nature and meet people is just as important as actual blogging. The day trip was inspirational for the bloggers.
