Another grand adventure is currently in the works! Jouhl and I hit the road late afternoon on May 21st for the East Coast. No time to waste…let’s get started!
Here’s the first state line, Texas!
We stopped at the Palo Duro Canyon State Park to check out the scenery. This is the second largest canyon in the United States and spans roughly 60 miles long with a maximum width of 20 miles. This is regarded as “The Grand Canyon of Texas.”
Here’s Jouhl taking it all in.
The canyon’s dramatic geological features, which included the multicolored layers of rock and steep mesa walls, was definitely worth the stop.
They recently had a rain storm. Just enough to get the creeks flowing again.
…and bring some mud to the roadway.
Next stop along the way was an unusual roadside attraction in Combine City, TX—Just outside of Amarillo. These are old retired combine tractors buried at an angle in a remote farm field. Is this a spoof of Amarillo’s Cadillac Ranch? There was no indication of who owns the land. Not even a sign was posted to attract tourists.
Had to get the TL positioned just so. I may have to buff out a few twig scuffs.
Then, it was time to see the real deal…Cadillac Ranch!
Sadly, you can’t drive up to the half buried Cadillac skeletons. We’d have to pass through the roadside fence to get up close and personal.
Here they are up close! Several spray-paint cans were lying all over and free for anyone to pick up and tag the cars as they pleased.
I chose to take this one for a test drive.
As seen here, these old Cadillacs were covered from top to bottom with paint. Several layers at that.
Check out how thick this stuff is laid on…
On wards to Oklahoma…
This state we pretty much blew right through. More to come so stay tuned!
