I was road tripping along Route 66 in Southern California in a beautiful Jaguar so naturally I had to get a few shots of it next to these kitschy landmarks. Surrounded by old neon signs and Route 66 decor, the Wigwam Motel in San Bernadino has a quaint charm and iconic theme - although it seems appropriate to point out that these buildings are technically shaped like teepees not wigwams. However, on a legendary road that's become more famous for its memorabilia and history than its current reality, it was nice to find a place this authentic.
In 2012 this motel (Wigwam Village #7) was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
