September 10, 2012Neon Signs And Vintage Motels In North Platte, Nebraska
Tom and I recently took a short road trip out to Colorado.
Why? Well, the time had come to rehome our beloved cat Midnight, who many of you have seen mugging in pictures on both of the blogs. Of course, we couldn’t think of any better place to rehome her than with Sara in AZ and her husband, Mike! So, it was a long car trip for us, and a long trip for them, but I am happy to say Midnight is now enjoying her new home in Arizona.
And you guys get to see some pictures which we took along the way!
We didn’t have a lot of time to stop at fun places, but we made an exception for North Platte. They had a lot of old motels with the original signs!
Here are some screen blocks from the Cedar Lodge Motel.
This motel was actually closed, but the sign was still up!
The Western Motel was absolutely adorable! I wish that we would have had time to see it at night. If you look closely at the sign, you can see that the cowboy and the bucking bronco move!
The actual motel portion of the Western Motel. Check out the porch furniture! Eames shell chairs!
And last, the Hub Bar! I wish we would have had time to stop in for a drink, but we were in a hurry to get back to Michigan. Ah well. Next time, North Platte!
