High Desert Bloggers recently enjoyed a day trip on Route 66 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.
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!
Like vintage shopping? Continue east on National Trails Highway about six miles to Linda Marie’s Enchanted Treasures. Linda Marie’s is a vintage-filled cottage, but the antiques don’t stop there. Go outdoors, and it’s like entering a vintage village. An inspirational delight for vintage-loving bloggers!
Save time for the next stop, Antique Station, that is only walking distance from Linda Marie’s. A quick walk-through might take you thirty mintues. On the other hand, at least an hour is a must for true enjoyable vintage shopping. In fact, one could easily spend two or three hours while shopping at this place.
The High Desert Bloggers Route 66 day trip was a break-away-from-the-computer outing. Getting out to enjoy nature and meet people is just as important as actual blogging. The day trip was an incredible way to get inspired for the next blog post and get the blood flowing.
