Ghost Motel

Abandoned places, roadside attractions, cabin, motel, Yosemite, California

Two summers ago, my husband Michael and I visited Yosemite National Park in northern California. It was one of our best trips ever, and Yosemite proved to be one of our favorite national parks. On the drive between our cabin and the park, we passed this deserted and forsaken roadside motel. Since we share a love of abandoned places, we had to stop and poke around.

Light filters through the crumbling ceilings and paints patterns on the walls and floor.
