Exploring Abandoned Hotel Ruins & Extremely Creepy Figures on Historic Highway video


We’re headed off the beaten path and into the days of the Old West as we drive down one of California’s infamous highways – Route 80. While venturing along this old historic highway, we explore the remains of several abandoned buildings including Hotel Vaughn and its former bathhouse where Carey Grant supposedly once bathed. While on this adventure, we run into some some really strange and creepy figures overlooking the highway and the US/Mexico border.
