...Arizona, another stop of Highway Sixty-Six,
in the song Winslow, Barstow, San Bernidino,
but that's the wrong direction, we are headed east,
but not before we stop and look at the La Posada beast.

The Grand hotel, a Harvey House, built some time ago,
the land has changed, they've been exchanged, we may be at a low,
let these buildings and these towns, become a pile of dust,
just the way, back some time, when we let the railroads rust.

Top:  Interior, the La Posada (art deco)
Middle: Exterior, the La Posada
Bottom: Well, I'm a standin' on a corner in Winslow, Arizona, and such a fine sight to see
             It's a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed Ford,
             slowin' down to take a look at me
  The Eagles
