We stop at the Sahara Oasis for refreshments, and again in Amboy at Roy's Café. If there is enough time left, we turn off the highway shortly before Barstow and ride into the Mojave Desert for a few miles to see the ghost town of Calico and the old silver mine. Now populated again and lovingly restored, Calico once housed over 1000 miners and adventurers searching for their luck. This beautiful stretch of Route 66 ends in Barstow, named after the owner of the Santa Fe Railroad Company and mentioned in the classic song "Get your kicks on route 66".
