Desert Icons

Here are some places of interest around the Mojave Desert area close to where I live. You'll always fined something unique out here. I took these pictures around 2004. I love this place!

Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway Station located next to the 20 Mule Team Museum in Boron.

The Original Site of the First Del Taco (founded 1961) located in Yermo. Now known as the Burger Den.

The Bagdad Cafe, Home of the Famous Buffalo Burger on Route 66 - Newberry Springs.

Roy Rogers Double R Bar Ranch Billboard on Route 66 - Helendale. The ranch is still there but the sign is now gone.

You are wrong about the date stating it was 1961. The first Del Taco restaurant was founded in 1964by Ed Hackbarth.

Del Taco's own web page says it was 1961 in Yermo.
