California and the end of Route 66

The official end of Route 66 is Santa Monica Pier in California and we made it there 2 weeks after leaving Chicago.


The weather was poor - more like Scarborough than Southern California! The summer mist that often comes in the summer came down a few miles before we reached the coast.


























This last photo reminded me of 'Hotel California' by the Eagles - it was taken on our way through Beverley Hills.





Yesterday we turned around to head back to Chicago - first stop, Las Vegas!

I enjoyed "riding along" on your trip on Route 66.
