The railroad built a Lodge in 1922 at the top of the train tracks. It is full of stories and antiques; supposed to be haunted by a chambermaid that disappeared long ago, named Rebecca. We did not see a ghost but we had a delicious, expensive dinner in her restaurant, "Rebecca's."
On the other side of the Sacramento Mountains, on the way to Carlsbad, is Artesia, an oil and gas town. This refinery is located at the end of Main Street.
It has an unnatural beauty.
