"End of the Trail Motel" Grand Avenue, Glendale, AZ - 1984


Even as a youngster I always thought it odd that the owners of the motel would use the name and the iconic image depicting the damage Euro-American settlement had inflicted upon Native Americans to lure them off the road and spend the night. 


Always burning bright as I grew up, it's neon glow began to fade when Interstate 10 was completed in 1978, and bypassing Grand Avenue. The decreased tourist traffic resulted in the decay and eventual demise of many businesses along Grand, including the Trails End Motel, which was demolished a few years later when the Avenue was expanded. It apparently, had come to The Trails End.
