Eating Out in Mining Country—Ludlow California

On our book signing trip to California we got to drive across the Mojave desert twice in three days. The first time, we were amazed at all the abandoned towns, eateries and train depots. On the way back, we stopped at some.
We even ate breakfast in Ludlow, because it had a restaurant that was open and we had not even seen a gas station that was open in over 50 miles. We soon learned that the entire area was full of Boron and Uranium Mines—thus the abandoned towns all around—and railroads that went nowhere. Also, the area was a bomb testing site during the cold war.
Too hungry to care, we had a great breakfast of eggs and sausage with sourdough bread and were soon on our way back to Arizona.

The town had it's own train station which only ran 18 miles.
