Leaving Williams we travelled down I40 to Needles, California. As we’ve never been to Needles before, we decided to stay for a couple of nights.
When we left Williams it was a lovely mid 70’s morning, when we arrived in Needles it was 102F! That was a bit of a shock to the system to say the least!
We took a trip into town to have a look at what was once El Garces Hotel and a Harvey House, it’s a beautiful building and is currently in the process of renovation.

I particularly liked this seat, representing three things that make the town unique, The Needles, the Colorado River and Route 66.

Have fun, we are!
