Old Spanish Trail Auto Route
Description:
This category seeks to waymark the unique pieces of Americana and history that still lie along the Old Spanish Trail Auto Route. It connects the old Spanish colonial towns of St. Augustine, Florida, on the U.S. Atlantic coast and San Diego, California, on the U.S. Pacific Coast. The Old Spanish Trail Auto Route is not to be confused with the 19th century cattle trail of the same name that wound from Santa Fe to Los Angeles.
