Crazy Daisy Tour Day 21: Klamath Falls, OR to Carson City, NV
Today was a three state day. We started out in Klamath Falls, drove through the northwest corner of California and then into Nevada. Stopping for lunch at The Sage Hen in Susanville, CA we phone Choice Hotels to book into the Quality Inn in Carson City, NV, for four nights.
On our way there, we stop at Reno (Las Vegas Lite) to take in the sights and sounds of "Hot August Nights". As we've noticed during this road trip, everything in America is for sale: businesses, homes, cars, you name it. Many of the traditional motels and hotels are boarded up. You can only wonder what their fate will be when the economy gets back on track. There is a fabulous array of classic cars from hot rods to police cruisers (below). We stop to listen to Route 66 a band that knows how to work the audience and features songs of the 50s, 60s and 70s.
