""Howdy~Keep Smiling!"" Yaqui's Profile
Life is an adventure whether it is within your own country or abroad. I am just enjoying exploring what is in my own backyard in the beautiful state of California. So much to see and explore in other states as well. Just remember "Happy Trails and Keep the Faith!"~

One of my favorite things to do is to stop (if safely) and enjoy all those historical markers you see along the highways or any where else you may find them. You just never know where they are. I am really keen is finding them. My hubby says I have radar when it comes to them. I will always add them to "things to see or do" or "off the beaten path". They are like finding a treasure and sometimes especially in California they are like a treasure hunt. So enjoy them when you see one. They are usually a wealth of information of local history!
Checkout the Historical Marker Data Base. History is being preserved for generations!
These communities have so much in common because of the lure of Gold, Silver, Borates, Tunsten, and Salt in the hopes of making millions or just to make a simple living and a home. California, Nevada and Arizona has so many abandon or living ghost towns to explore. Nothing like hitting the road and exploring these wonderful pieces of history. Sometimes we dwell on what we don't have, but when you visit places like these, it makes me appreciate what simple pleasure we have today.

Route 66 was established in 1926 and it extended from Chicago Illinois to the beautiful shores of Santa Monica California. Called The Mother Road, it stretched 2, 448 miles across the good old USA. Growing up, we drove frequently from Colorado to California to visit family along this route. This was of course before hand held video games, DVD’s, cell phones, or air-conditioned cars.
Did you know for about 1,000 miles (1,600 km), I-40 follows the general route of the Beale Wagon Road from Arkansas to California. The Beale Wagon Road was built in 1857-59 by a team led by Lt. Edward Fitzgerald Beale using a team of camels as pack animals.

To me murals are very much part of our Americana history. I can remember traveling the countryside and seeing the old advertisements of Coca Cola, Pepsi Cola, John Deer, etc. Erected on the side of some old country barn or along some lonesome drug store along Main Street. By the way, have you ever notice that most old towns have a main street?..lol!

Why do I like horses? I think I must be mad.
My mother wasn't horsey - And neither was my dad.
But the madness hit me early - and it hit me like a curse.
And I've never gotten better. In fact I've gotten worse.
I hardly read a paper - but I know who's sold their horse.
And I wouldn't watch the news - Unless Mr. Ed was on - of course.
One eye's always on the heavens - but my washing waves in vain
As I rush to get the horses in - in case it's gonna rain.
I spend up every cent I've got - on horsey stuff for sure
I buy saddles, bridles, fancy boots - and then I buy some more.
I can't sew on a button - I don't even try
But I can back a truck and trailer - in the twinkling of an eye.
It's jeans and boots that I live in night and day
And that smell of sweaty horses just doesn't wash away.
I ache from long forgotten falls. My knees have got no skin.
My toes have gone a funny shape - from being stomped on again and again.
But late at night, when all is still - and I've gone to give them hay,
I touch their velvet softness and my worries float away.
They give a gentle nicker and they nuzzle through myhair
And I know it's where my heart is - more here than
