The Sign of The Space Age Restaurant in Gila Bend Arizona
[by Jack Foster Mancilla]
A couple days ago, I headed out to the Anza Borrego desert to take some pictures of the wildflowers.
This is the reason that I usually like to travel to targets, and be the driver. When I got to the turnoff on interstate 8, I kept heading east. We wound up in Gila Bend Arizona. … 😎 …
Yeps! Gila Bend.
When a very good friend of mine was going to school at the University of Arizona, Tucson, I used to drive between San Diego and Tucson quite frequently. Gila Bend had a very cool Motel that looked very spacy, and I got it into my head that I wanted to visit it again. Forget the flowers, “Spaceward Ho!”
The original burned down quite a while ago, but it has been replaced by the Space Age Motor Lodge and Restaurant. This image will jump you into the middle of some images. The new one is still very cool. … 😉
