This is a great shot from downtown Hope, Alaska.
As I sped across the country, I was once again astonished at the dilapidation of small-town America. But there is beauty, too in the recollection of a bygone era. I have no idea where I took this photo, but I think it was somewhere in Colorado.
This is Pere Antoine Restaurant at the corner of Royal and St. Ann in the ever beautiful French Quarter of New Orleans.
Unfortunately this place was closing up when I visited, but it sure looks like the kind of place that makes some serious food.
I liked this old gas pump out on Route 66 in Seligman, Arizona.
I love this sign! This is the Thunderbird Restaurant in Mt. Carmel Junction in Utah.
This is Middlegate Station in Fallon, Nevada. It served as a stage and freight station for many years and was also a Pony Express stop in its time. Today it is one of the last true roadhouses in the country. Stop in for a drink if you’re ever driving down Nevada Route 50, you’ll be glad you did.
Quite simply put, this place has the best ribs I have ever eaten. Others have come close, but every time I go back to Fat Matt’s in Atlanta, Georgia I think ‘nope, still the best’. A cold beer and good music don’t hurt either.
