Felicity, California

Have you ever driven just inside Calif, from Yuma on I-8 & wondered what the little church & spiral stairs are along the Hwy. I always thought they were the stairway to heaven? Well not so! It’s the town of Felicity. And the spiral stairs are the 12th section of stairs from the Eiffel Tower. Go to for the full scoop on this interesting town.

Glad we took the time to stop. The web site gives more perspective on this place. It’s another interesting stop along the Hi-ways & Bi-ways of this great country.

While in Yuma we took a trip to The Dodson Museum. It’s east of Yuma. There are no signs to get there. It’s a word of mouth type of place. Full of Antiques. The lady takes you through her house & out buildings. Below is a sample of what she has. It’s in Tacna, AZ. 1-928-503-0168

To show what a small world it is we went to this museum with friends in Yuma & it turns out one of the couples we were with is from Bellingham, WA. & worked with Steve’s cousins Tiny & Dale in Bellingham.  After Museum we went to this restaurant for a great lunch. It’s not far from the Museum.
