Then we wandered back along the road to a burger joint (evidently another famous landmark in Seligman) which was really fun
If daisies are your favourite flower keep pushin' up those miles per hour.
Cattle crossing means go slow that old bull is some cow's beau.
We stopped at Mr D'z Route 66 Diner in Kingman, Arizona for lunch. The diner is a cheesy 1950's replica diner, with bright turquoise colouring with hot pink highlights. The food there was good, but the service was pretty slack (though not really the poor waiter's fault, he was getting a bit flustered at how slow things were). They had home-made caramel flavoured root beer, which was really yummy.
Then on to the ghost-town Chloride, which turned out to be not a ghost-town after all. It was however a mining town from 1860, that is the oldest 'continual' mining town. Mainly it just looked like a small, dusty collection of houses and tourist shops. We took a few photos in the fake 'wild west' town where they have mock gunfights every Saturday noon (being that it was Sunday afternoon at 3.30pm there wasn't much going on). Had to chuckle at the 'Dead Ass Saloon' complete with the sign "Beer 25 cents, Whiskey 25 cents, Hangings Free." We had to go through a security check just before the entrance to Hoover Dam. A couple of police officers checked our outside locker in the 5th Wheel, and had a quick look inside. The Hoover Dam itself wasn't as big as I thought it would be, but still pretty impressive. We are staying the night in an RV park in Boulder City, Nevada.
