10 Jun Motel, Somewhere Out West
My husband Richard’s brother and his wife live in Hailey, Idaho (next door neighbor to Sun Valley). We’ve visited them several times and flown into Salt Lake City, Utah and then driven five hours across the fairly barren plains to Idaho. With few things to catch your eye on this type of journey, one of these giant Motel signs is a true delight! I have NO idea where I took this picture, but could be sure it was along that desolate road with the plains stretching out in all directions, punctuated by the ever-present phone lines.
