The sights of Route 66
Next stop: Santa Fe, NMThe last two days have been filled with all of the strange and entertaining roadside “must sees” of Route 66.
It seems that the goal was to display “the biggest” or “the tallest” or… There was clearly no concern as to what the biggest or tallest novelty was. Cowboy, Ox, Shoe, Tower…
Speaking of towers, check out this gem. All 4 legs are the same length but the center water pipe it too tall. It was too costly to fix so they just left it that way.
This cross stands 190 ft tall and is believed to be the largest in the Western Hemisphere. It includes beautiful night time lighting and all of the stations of the cross below.
The closer we get to New Mexico, the more creative the “art”.
