Well, not really, but Rob did encourage me to take a week or so off from blogging over Christmas and that sounds like a great gift to me. In fact, I just might have jumped at the chance. Allegedly, of course. Rob may (or may not) post a few times until I return in a week…or two. :)
Merry Christmas from our family to you and yours.

Being in a campground attached to a visitable attraction has been kinda fun this week. Even though the town technically closes at dusk, being a camper and knowing 'the late-night guys' has its advantages. For the entire month, Calico is decorated for the holidays, and it very apparent at night. I thought it'd be fun to wander around and show off some of the sites.
While we were visiting yesterday I took a couple of pics, and then took those same shots tonight with the lights on.
And then I took a couple of creative shots too.

Bodie. Instead, Calico has been carefully rebuilt to appear old (although some of the ruins do remain and many mine entrances are still visible). Most of the replicated buildings are air-conditioned and filled to the brim with shops and food and anything else that will appeal to tourists. But even so, it is, oh, so very, very fun! We're having a ball here.

BUT, Barstow does have something that ranks high on the coolness scale. Historic Route 66 runs right through the town, right down Main Street.
