Holbrook, New Mexico: The town with nothing there.
I stopped along the way and saw the Painted Desert, the Petrified Forest, and heard a ranger program on plants and animals of whatever ancient time period that was, that I cannot spell nor pronounce.
I am grumpy today. So that is all the blogging I can do.
Oh and the landscape is back down to the Mojave Desert type. Very beautiful, but strangely…. no wildlife. Not even birds. Very odd feeling.
Aww grumpy River Birchy girl? 🙂
We have plenty of towns with “nothing there” too. Makes you wonder why people live in them.
There’s a movie called The Petrified Forest. Have you seen it?
Yes, exactly, why do they stay here? Honestly, it’s weird. Maybe your hermit is one of them….
I have not heard of that movie. What is it about?
I don’t know I haven’t seen it LOL. Here’s the blurb on it from imdb. ( made in 1936)
“A waitress, a hobo and a bank robber get mixed up at a lonely diner in the desert.”
