Star Motel Alamogordo
This old motel sits on White Sands. It used to have wagon wheels on the front, and somewhere in my mind I always think of it as the Wagon Wheel motel. I don't remember what it's name used to be. It might have been called the Wagon Wheel. I am sure someone out there remembers, if you do, let me know!
It looks like a Route 66 remenant, juxtaposed along more modern buildings.
You can see where the old vigas were.
The purple doors are probably the most current update to the place.
It is a shame it is in such a state of disrepair.
Not the best photo, but you can see even less updates here. I have a feeling it will be torn down before long and wanted to capture it before that happens.
