    Just a few miles east of Barstow in Newberry Springs. An abandoned motel and an abandoned gas station. As you can see I liked the sign and the gas pumps.

      Very awesome old sign and pumps fort. Although I always feel saddened when I see dilapidated businesses and homes. it always makes me wish I could restore them. Especially the businesses, I want a storefront of my own so badly.

      What a beauty, was there a for sale sign posted? =^'

      I think there was a for sale sign for the motel (all of it).

      The southwest desert is filled with abandoned buildings and businesses. And for some reason they never demolish the old buildings.

      Love the old station with pumps still out front.

      Thank you very much Trey. I can not think of a better place for those old pumps.
