The vastness of the American West never ceases to amaze.
There's just a LOT of nothin'.
Therein lies the beauty.
Along the high way there are occasional outposts which beckon
and invite the traveler to pause . The signs promise the best
bar b que, the coldest beer and numerous "authentic" Indian
pots / blankets / trinkets.
But, the real draw is the nostalgia for another time ... .. . . a world of
Elvis and Diners and Drive In Movies.
You're lured by the old fashioned feeling ... . .
then reminded you won't miss out on your connected reality as you
settle down in the authentic wild west hotel and pop open your laptop.
(Why, of course we have Wi-Fi!)
There are moments when the line between current reality and nostalgic
Reality: Yes, we have a Vacancy.
Nostalgia: No, we don't actually have rooms for $3.50 .
Guess which one is the tourist.
