California Postcard

Greetings from California Postcard, available at Legends’ General Store.

The stretch of Route 66 that passes through California extends from the Colorado River near Needles to the Pacific Ocean at Santa Monica. Traveling through deserts, mountains, ghost towns, metropolitan areas, and beach communities, California’s 320 miles of the Mother Road provide various geography, cultures, architecture, and photographic opportunities.

When Route 66 began to be built in 1926, the road made the Golden State accessible to thousands of travelers seeking the dream that California provided. 95% of the original road is still drivable through California, and the California Route 66 Preservation Foundation is working hard to preserve those remaining icons of the past.

Enjoy your journey through the Golden State.
