We put in another long day as we traveled from Amarillo to just West of Grants, NM.
Another great state park just over six miles South of I-40. There are 132 sites scattered across five different campgrounds. Most all are developed with a table and fire ring. 14 of them have electric available. That’s what we selected as it’s to be 36* tonight and some heat will probably feel good in the morning.
Our site. $14.00….
Other views from a couple of the roads in the park.
Before leaving Amarillo this morning, we went on the hunt for something we’ve missed every time we’ve passed through town. Cadillac Ranch. Though I knew it was just off I-40 west of Amarillo, I had never spotted it. After reading a friends post about visiting it last week, I was determined to find it. Asked the waitress at dinner last evening. She didn’t know, but asked her boss. His directions were wrong. Wanda had asked the guy in the office of the RV park. His directions were wrong. Seems everyone knows about it, just not where it is located. After two failed attempts I happened to remember that I had some roadside attractions loaded in my GPS. Opened the POI file, and there it was. The ol’ Garmin led up right to it.
She always wanted to be a graffiti artist. Cans of paint were scattered around everywhere.
It’s amazing how thick the layers of spray paint have built up over the years.
Bet he towed a Casita.
A fun stop. Can now say I have been there. Amazingly a number of the original tires are still on the rims and the differentials are still operational. Spin a wheel, and its mate turns the opposite direction.
Someone had a sense of humor, also.
