I had seen the documentary "Amargosa" a little over a year ago and was so delighted to finally go see the Opera House and stay at the motel. This is a rare and unusual experience. Marta's paintings in the Opera House are too wonderful and unique for words. The motel is comfortable (very modest and quiet) and I so enjoyed talking with the staff (Rich, Mary Lee and Patty) about some of the history of the place. The location of this special place is "out in the middle of nowhere" and truly feels like a desert mirage. The surrounding area is dusty and plain...perfect for anyone who just wants to "stop" and "be" and also to marvel and to catch an intuitive glimpse of an America long past. The small graveyard nearby also feels as though it has secrets to whisper, as does the Opera House and the motel...for anyone willing to stop, take a breath, slow waay down and just listen. I loved it here and hope to return.
