California's Cultural Survey of Route 66

From the Dec. 22, 2010, Los Angeles Times.

Catching up on some older articles.

The California Preservation Foundation and the National Park Service used a $65,000 grant to do a cultural survey of the famous highway.  A 1931 AAA guide showed that there was 332 miles of Route 66 from Needles to Los Angeles.

A number of Route 66 sites in the state are already on the NRHP, including the Aztec Hotel in Monrovia and the Colorado Street Bridge in Pasadena.

Lots of desert in That State.  --RoadDog
