Photo of the Week: Cadillac Ranch | Amarillo, Texas

-> A weekly snapshot {sometimes two, or three…} and musings from my WANDERful life. <-

Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Texas, is one of the quirkiest and most unique sights I saw during my road trips around the United States! A public art installation created in 1974 by a group called The Ant Farm, Cadillac Ranch is a collection of ten Cadillacs buried nose-down in the dirt.

This must-see sight along Route 66 is a fun stop for tourists of all ages. Grab a can of spray paint {either bring your own, or pick up a discarded but not-yet-empty can of spray paint from the ground} and leave your mark on one of the ten caddies – as people have been doing for over 40 years. Make sure you snap a photo of it, it’ll only be a matter of time before someone else sprays over it!

And yes, you’ll technically be trespassing, but from what I’ve heard and read, peaceful tourists are welcomed at this roadside sight. Just do the environment a favor and don’t discard the spray paint can on the ground. Litter isn’t good for anyone!
