Well it's finally happened…they tore down the old Wagon Wheel Hotel in Oxnard, CA. They've been talking about it for a few years… not sure when they did it, but it was sometime in the last 6 months or so. The Wagon Wheel was a great old hotel..I remember when I used to drive down to LA from San Francisco a lot.. and you couldn't miss this thing, I mean it just jumped out at you, like it had been transported from a different time (it had!) It closed its doors in 2006… Ever since 2007 or so, I tried to make it a point to stop and look around and snap a few pics anytime I passed by. Theres a really good video on its history HERE [youtube.com]. Its WIKIPEDIA [en.wikipedia.org] page is very informative as well. I have more photos that will be published as Part 2.
