Day 6: Needles to Santa Monica

Day 6 was the final leg of the Route 66 trip west. Just a last 329 miles of mostly dead straight road, found me descending out of the hills into the suburbs of Los Angeles. A fraught few miles of fighting my way through the traffic on the freeway and I was into Beverley Hills and driving past places I had heard of in the movies! The last part of the route takes you along Santa Monica Boulevard, past Rodeo Drive and onto Ocean Boulevard and the end of historic Route 66. There you can park for 50 cents for half an hour while you gaze out over the Pacific Ocean and savor the moment!
