Historic Route 6 Recognized by State of California

Note from Steven: For those of you who RV on the two-lanes here is a nice story & video about historic Route 6... no 6 not 66... at least the So Cal part of it.

The stretch of historic Route 6 between Santa Clarita, CA and the Antelope Valley of the Mojave Desert knew the road — this section now called Sierra Highway — has been honored for helping pave the state with prosperity in bygone days.

Last week the state of California passed a resolution recognizing the highway, hoping to revive and preserve communities along the coast-to-coast route.

The 3,562-mile thoroughfare links Cape Cod, Mass., with Long Beach, making it the longest uninterrupted roadway in the nation. Portions of the road once served as the main street in many towns.

The highway spans 14 states. In California, it winds through Bishop, Lone Pine, Mojave, Rosamond, Lancaster, Palmdale and Newhall, then south to Long Beach.
