Road Trip to San Francisco (Day 3)

These photos were taken on the 3rd day of the great road trip to San Francisco.  We started our morning with a long walk at sunrise…since we were conveniently still on Dallas time.  Barstow had an interesting little setup.  The town has clearly embraced the fast food industry and made a unique little “stop and go” that is called Barstow Station. Champi enjoyed the morning exploring while I snapped a few photos of the sights.  Not so oddly, I was the only pedestrian I saw the entire morning.

I wonder if those train cars have actually been to Santa Fe.

I really enjoyed how it was impossible to take any photo without getting the big “M” in the view.  Makes you hungry. right!?

All of the excitement of the Barstow (McDonald’s) Station was directly across the street from what appeared to be an abandoned Barstow Mall.  Not that one form of consumerism is better than the other, The fast food was definitely doing better this morning.  I think we all had our fill of Barstow, and shortly after, we hit the road for the last leg of our trip.  The drive went well on Saturday, but I did not get any more shots till we arrived in Pacifica.  I remember it being a looooong day. =)

Enjoy, -Jay
